Eric Early was recently featured in the Los Angeles Business Journal’s article “Time to Grow,” which examines the future trajectory of the legal profession in the aftermath of the COVID-19-influenced hiring spree at many law firms.
The article explores how, in today’s uncertain economy, there is a split between firms that are laying off or hesitant to hire after the 2022 hiring surge, and those that are using this unprecedented climate as a means to expand their workforce. It is noted that a major factor for firms currently considering expansion is the anticipated surge in demand for certain specialties, including litigation. In anticipation of this demand, Early Sullivan Wright Gizer & McRae LLP opened an office in Calabasas, California in 2023 to offer the firm’s services in the surrounding areas.
Eric explains to LABJ, “With the hard times going on within the nation, litigators end up with more business, and that’s what we’ve been experiencing quite frankly. For our business, everything looks quite good.”
