Is the U.S economy on its way to another recession, so soon after the last? Did we ever really get out of the last one?

Add the latest employment and salary survey by Robert Half Legal, the legal recruiting firm, to the list of contradictory economic indicators.

The survey of several hundred “senior lawyers” in firms and in general counsel offices around the country found that the hiring market had picked up. Firms were having increasing difficulty finding experienced associates in busy practice areas like litigation, commercial transactions and health care.

The transformation of Cozen O’Connor from its singular focus on insurance litigation to a broader base of transactional law and other practices continues apace.

Cozen O'Connor law firm announced what it said was a succession plan Wednesday that has Michael Heller, chair of the business law department, taking on additional responsibilities as president and Vince McGuinness becoming managing partner.

Tad Decker, who will give up the title of president but remain chief executive officer, said that the two had been involved in strategic planning at the firm for some time and that the announcement of a succession plan portended no major changes.
