AN INCREASE in commercial and corporate legal work could lead to a boom in the legal recruitment market, recruitment consultants Richard Owen & Harper have claimed.
A survey of 43 firms by the consultants revealed that 98 per cent had recruited permanent fee earners between October 1995 and March 1996.
