Why New York?
New York is a city known worldwide for its culture, landmarks and world leading law firms. New York is seen as one of the best cities to live in due to its multitude of opportunities that are on offer, especially for experienced and well-educated lawyers. 

What is the legal sector like?
New York is one of the top three financial centres in the world, so there is an emphasis by firms on finance and capital markets.   The city is known for Transactional (specifically M&A), Commercial Finance, Real Estate and Investment Funds. With over 175,000 lawyers, New York has the largest number of lawyers out of all the US states. Although the legal sector in New York is very competitive, it can mean great opportunities for lawyers from overseas to build on their career.

What about work/life balance?
New York work life is known for long hours but the benefit of working here is the very competitive salaries on offer, which are very often more than if you were a Lawyer based in London. But this may be a small price to make in return for living in a fantastic city with world leading restaurants and bars on your door step.
