Large firms have reduced the size of their partnerships in Australia by an average of 4.4 per cent in 2015, according to research that has been published in The Australian. 

Allens - cut the most

The biggest cuts have taken place at Allens (down 8.7 per cent), Clayton Utz (5.7 per cent), DLA Piper (five per cent), Norton Rose Fulbright (4.4 per cent) and Gilbert + Tobin (4.2 per cent). None of the large firms show up in a top ten listing for lawyer and partner recruitment over the year. 

National law firms increase

The two firms topping the lawyer and partner recruitment tables are both national firms. Mills Oakley Lawyers tops the lawyer recruitement table, up 47.2 per cent (by recruiting 68 people in full-time positions). First-placed in the partnership table, Hall & Wilcox has seen a 41.8 per cent growth in partnership recruitment.
