This NY Times article, published Friday, describes an influx of U.S. legal résumés in foreign markets:
A year ago, a lawyer looking for work in Hong Kong could have gone on eight interviews and had seven offers, [a legal recruiter] says. But in this market, firms can afford to be choosier. . . . Now they can afford to be more selective because there are more highly qualified candidates coming over.Much of the article is old hat, but there are some dishy remarks from Boalt OCI frequent fliers, including Kirkland, Latham, Covington, Weil, Fulbright, Cave, DLA Piper, and Clifford Chance.
