New York

The city is home to large law firms which tend to have clients that are global businesses or individuals who can afford the fees the top firms charge. The small law firms tend to the needs of individuals and small businesses who cannot afford representation from the large firms.

There are plenty of legal opportunities due to the growing economy of the city and the globalisation of these firms; this economic growth has meant there is an increasing need for legal assistance.

New York’s legal market is split into three sections: leading “White Shoe” firms, international firms and domestic mid-tier/ boutique firms. To work within the US legal market a strong academic background (you will need a copy of your academic transcript) is essential and employers prefer that candidates have passed the New York Bar.
