TRU Q2 2021 NEWSLETTER

The pandemic recovery is electric throughout the data privacy, e-discovery, and cybersecurity communities. More jobs in our industries are open now than at any point in TRU’s history. Among the highlights this quarter is TRU’s “Why Now Is the Best Time in 20 Years to Make a Job Move in e-Discovery,” a call to action for ESI job seekers and wisdom for those who seek to hire them.

TRU—and the legal technology job market in general—had a landmark second quarter in 2021. Notching the highest count of job offers accepted in a single month (May) means TRU united more talent with employers than ever before. Emerging from the pandemic, there are clear variables that enable employers to acquire talent in data privacy, e-discovery, and cybersecurity over their competitors. Our staff-authored articles this quarter speak loudly to those distinctions and unpack the importance of speed of hire as well as the complexities of the return-to-office versus work-from-home debate.

The Pandemic Job Market: From Drought to Pandemonium

Over the last 12 months, the legal technology job market hit both a decade-long low and an all-time high for hiring, job movement and salary demand. In April 2020, the job market began its “Great Pause.” Subsequently, the second and third quarters of 2020 saw fewer legal technology job openings than any two quarters since 2010. Flash forward to the second quarter of 2021, and there is more talent demand than supply, rapid salary growth to attract and retain employees, broadly increased job opportunity derived from changes related to work-from-home (WFH) adoption, and a resulting never-before-seen level of turnover among middle-market positions that has the entire industry in a hiring frenzy.

5 Ways Legal Departments Are Trying—And Struggling—To Manage Privacy's Costs

Privacy can be expensive business for legal departments and their organizations—even before any kind of a data breach or regulatory penalty has struck.

Maintaining a robust defense against outside cyberthreats requires a healthy investment in technology, internal hires and outside service providers. Those costs can also grow as businesses find it more difficult to pass on the liability for breaches to cloud companies and other data storage vendors.

Law.com's Frank Ready included input from TRU founder and CEO Jared Coseglia to help explain the situation.

Law Firms' Stinginess With Equity Can Handicap Their Tech Subsidiaries

Firms serious about luring top talent to their technology subsidiaries may have to break with a longstanding tradition of reserving equity for partners—and let their subsidiaries have their own culture. Try as they may to be innovative, law firms are nevertheless associated with an abiding and often restrictive sense of tradition that can make it cumbersome—if not altogether prohibitive—to explore new service delivery models. Allegiance to the billable hour, for example, has often tripped up progress on alternative fee arrangements. Now the question of equity might be doing the same for hiring inside firm tech subsidiaries.
