Dennis B. Kass Quoted in Article on the Current Attorney Hiring Market

June 14, 2024

Firm Managing Partner Dennis B. Kass was recently quoted in an article published by the Los Angeles Business Journal about the state of the hiring market of attorneys and the trends to keep an eye on. Despite many law firms slowing down their hiring after a blistering hot market the past few years, those headquartered in Los Angeles have remained very active with an emphasis on partner recruiting in order to drive growth. 

Last week, Manning Kass welcomed a group of 11 attorneys and six paralegals to its New York office, and Kass shed some insight on the thought process behind these decisions. “Having done this for 35-plus years, the thing that dictates growth more than anything is the economy,” he said. “Just before 2008 hit, we knew something was happening. We didn’t know what, but we saw certain practice areas really picking up and others starting to crash.”

Just as in 2008, the economy is still adjusting from the pandemic and driving the firm’s current growth and strategic injection of talent. “Trial attorneys are harder to find,” Kass said. We could use some newer attorneys who could grow and learn to be trial attorneys. We’re looking at every level.”
