Welcome to the Taylor Root 2022 Global In-house Market Report. In what has once again been an unprecedented year, we felt that it was more vital than ever that our annual commentary on the in-house market was being informed not only by our global team of specialist consultants but also by you, our global in-house community.
This year’s report provides a snapshot of each jurisdiction covered by our 13 international offices, including a market S.W.O.T analysis and salary data by levels of qualification, and a few key infographics to give insight into the salient issues in that region.
In January 2021 we noticed the job market change almost overnight. As the overall mood was improving and the economy recovering massively, corporates started hiring again with great eager. In most cases the requirements were for new headcount, confirming a need to strengthen existing legal department structures. The pandemic has accelerated the market requirements for the In-house Counsel of the future: the “O” shaped lawyer. A C-suite executive, that is involved in strategy, growth, crisis management, risk assessment, GDPR and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) but also has communication skills. We expect the post pandemic lawyer will need to be agile and more “human”: agile because they will need to quickly adapt the frequent changes in business models and business strategies and more “human” as they will need to care for their team, their colleagues and watch out on their well-being; they will need to adapt their working style to remote working, flexible working hours and to their colleagues needs.
