Laura Leopard sums up their findings:” 2020 was a tale of what could have been and what was. The year started off as a continuation of the previous years in terms of growth until the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Firms reacted to market conditions and responded to the growing needs of their clients as the year ended, attorney hiring pulled backed up allowing firms to end the year in a much better position than many had expected at the start of the pandemic .”
