It’s a good time to be a lawyer these days, if a new report from staffing firm Robert Half Legal is to be believed.

According to Robert Half Legal, law firms are feeling the effects of today’s talent shortage.

More than three in 10 lawyers (31 percent) recently surveyed by Robert Half Legal said recruiting highly skilled legal professionals is the greatest practice management challenge facing their firm.

Caseload or workflow management ranked second, with 19 percent of the survey response.

These concerns come at a time when many law firms are seeing an overall increase in business.

More than eight in 10 lawyers (83 percent) surveyed said that demand for legal services from their firms has grown either somewhat or significantly over the past 12 months.
