New Year Hiring Spike Remains High: February 2020 In-House Moves

The law firm hiring spike continues! The month of February saw a major increase in hiring new top lawyers in all different industries. From health care giants Centene Corp. and WellCare Health Plans Inc., to major retailer Pier 1 Imports Inc. and entertainment corporation Six Flags, many areas of industry made big changes in the wake of the New Year. 

Some general counsel who vacated their positions took different routes rather than retiring. The National Security Agency’s general counsel went to a D.C. think tank, and the former general counsel of Godiva Chocolatier and Ralph Lauren headed to a legal recruiting firm in New York. 

Industries that saw top lawyer changes this past month include automotive, aviation, energy, entertainment, finance, food, health, insurance, manufacturing, technology and transportation.
