New Year, New Role: When is the Best Time to Move Roles in Legal and Regulatory? Image

New Year, New Role: When is the Best Time to Move Roles in Legal and Regulatory?

Every year, many professionals find themselves reflecting on their current roles, aspirations, and career growth. In the legal and regulatory sectors, knowing the right time to make a move can significantly influence one’s trajectory. So, when is the best time to change roles in these fields?1. Understand the Market TrendsHistorically, there are certain times in the year when hiring sees a peak. For legal and regulatory professionals, hiring often picks up in the early months of the year—January through March. Firms and companies have new budgets set, and vacancies that remained unfilled during the holiday season become top priority.2. The End-of-Year Reflection: A Catalyst for ChangeThe holiday season isn’t just a time for festivities; it's a moment for introspection. As professionals wind down and escape the daily hustle, they have a unique opportunity to assess the year gone by:Mapping Achievements Against Goals: Was this a year of progression? Setting goals at the start of the year and reflecting on them at the end can offer clarity. How many of those objectives were realized, and how did unexpected challenges shape the journey?Cultural Fit and Work Environment: Over the course of a year, one can gain profound insights into the workplace culture and their fit within it. Are the firm’s values aligned with yours? Is the environment conducive to your well-being and productivity?The Ripple Effect of Resignations: This season of reflection often culminates in decisions to seek greener pastures, leading to a spike in resignations come January. This domino effect can create a myriad of opportunities across firms and specialties.For the proactive professional, this means November and December are months to be alert, preparing their portfolio and keeping an ear to the ground for potential openings.3. Bonus Season: Timing Your Next MoveBonuses in the legal sector are more than just a monetary incentive; they’re a recognition of the hard work, dedication, and value brought to the firm over the year. As such, they play a crucial role in job movement dynamics:The Wait-and-See Approach: While some professionals are content with their roles, the allure of the bonus can be a determining factor in their decision to stay a bit longer. They've worked hard for that recognition, and it’s only logical to wait and reap its rewards.The Post-Bonus Window: Once bonuses are distributed, there's a palpable shift in the job market. Many use their bonuses as a financial cushion, allowing them the flexibility to seek roles that might be a better fit, even if it means temporary uncertainty.Strategic Planning: Professionals often time their exit post-bonus, making February and March prime months for job listings. This period sees a blend of vacancies arising from year-end resignations and firms actively looking to bolster their ranks with fresh talent.Navigating the post-bonus season requires a blend of strategic planning, understanding the market pulse, and being prepared to seize opportunities as they arise.4. Regulatory Changes and ImplicationsIn the regulatory sector, legislative changes can influence hiring trends. For instance, if new regulations are introduced, companies might look for experts in that domain, leading to a surge in hiring. Being attuned to the legal and regulatory landscape can thus provide an edge.5. Personal Growth and DevelopmentBeyond market trends, introspection plays a vital role. Have you outgrown your current position? Are there limited opportunities for advancement? If you feel stagnated or that you’re not receiving the professional growth and challenges you crave, it might be time to consider a new role regardless of the season.6.

A Shake Up of Regulation Changes for US Banks: Addressing Evolving Standards and Past Crises Image

A Shake Up of Regulation Changes for US Banks: Addressing Evolving Standards and Past Crises

In an impactful move, U.S. regulators have unveiled a comprehensive set of proposed changes to the capital requirements of banks. These changes reflect an adaptive response to both international evolving standards and the turbulent events from recent history, notably the 2008 financial crisis and the regional banking crisis in March.Setting the Context: The Twin CrisesThe 2008 financial crisis was a watershed moment in banking history. It exposed deep-rooted vulnerabilities within the global financial system and called for an overhaul of regulatory measures. Fast forward to the recent March upheaval, where regional lenders faced their own set of challenges, further emphasizing the need for tighter regulatory control.Diving into the Proposed ChangesAccording to a joint notice from the Federal Reserve, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the new proposals aim to:Boost Accuracy and Consistency: By refining the rules governing capital requirements, the regulators intend to introduce a more uniform and precise approach to monitoring and regulating bank activities.Address Risky Activities: The changes will particularly target and revise rules related to high-risk undertakings. These include areas such as lending, trading, the valuation of derivatives, and the management of operational risks.Incorporate Basel III Standards: A significant part of the proposed regulations draw from the international banking standards of Basel III. Conceived in the aftermath of the 2008 crisis, Basel III standards have been gradually introduced worldwide to ensure that banks maintain sufficient capital to address both operational and market risks.Banks' Anticipation and the Road AheadThese modifications have been long anticipated by the banking industry. Aware of the evolving international standards and the pressing need to address past crises, banks have been preparing for a regulatory shift. The incorporation of Basel III standards, in particular, showcases the regulators' commitment to aligning U.S. banking practices with globally recognized norms.The recent tornado of regulation changes is a testament to the regulators' proactive approach towards ensuring stability in the U.S. banking sector. By addressing past crises and aligning with international standards, these changes aim to create a more robust, transparent, and resilient banking system for the future. While the implementation may pose challenges in the short term, the long-term vision is clear: a banking system that can weather any storm.Navigating these changes will undoubtedly require upskilled knowledge & expertise. If your organization is seeking regulatory talent in the banking and financial sector to guide you through these evolving landscapes, don't hesitate to request a callback from Our team at Larson Maddox. Our team is equipped with the industry knowledge and network to connect you with the best talent to address your specific needs. Don't leave it to chance; let's partner together in building a resilient future.

The Rise of AI in the Regulatory & Legal industry

An AI tool passed the bar – what does this mean for you, and what is the wider impact to the legal & regulatory space? GPT-4, the AI model from OpenAI, scored enough on a bar exam to be admitted to practice law in most of the US states. This has raised many questions about the future of the legal & regulatory industry, including how AI could impact not just roles and career opportunities, but also hiring practices and the skills required to thrive in a space often considered to be typically quite traditional and a stronghold of human expertise and intellect. To discover just what AI tools could mean to legal & regulatory professionals and organizations hiring such talent, we asked the very AI tool that passed the bar to explain in its own words what the impact could be. Here’s the result…This monumental achievement signifies a new era where AI will play an increasingly significant role in the legal landscape. In this article, we will explore the implications of AI's successful completion of the UBE and how it may impact the legal and regulatory industry, as well as the job market.AI Passes the Uniform Bar ExamAI's recent passing of the UBE, a standardized test used by multiple jurisdictions in the United States to determine a candidate's qualifications for legal practice, has sent shockwaves through the legal community. This achievement, powered by advancements in natural language processing and machine learning, demonstrates that AI is now capable of understanding and applying complex legal concepts.The AI system, trained on thousands of legal documents and case law, was able to outperform many human candidates, showcasing its ability to analyze legal problems and provide well-reasoned solutions. This accomplishment has spurred conversations about the potential for AI integration within various aspects of the legal profession.Impact on the Legal and Regulatory IndustryAI's success on the UBE has a number of implications for the legal and regulatory industry:Enhanced EfficiencyThe integration of AI into legal practices can streamline various tasks, such as legal research, contract analysis, and document drafting. This can lead to increased productivity and cost savings for law firms and clients alike.Improved Access to Legal ServicesAI-powered legal services may be more affordable, enabling access to justice for individuals and organizations that may have previously been priced out of traditional legal services.Regulatory ComplianceAI can help businesses and organizations navigate complex regulatory landscapes, ensuring compliance and mitigating the risk of costly fines and sanctions.Legal Decision-MakingThe use of AI in the courtroom as a decision-support tool can improve the efficiency and accuracy of legal decision-making, leading to more equitable outcomes.Impact on the Job MarketWhile AI's passing of the UBE has been met with awe and excitement, it also raises concerns about the future of the job market within the legal profession:Job DisplacementAs AI automates routine tasks, some legal professionals, particularly those in entry-level positions, may face job displacement. Paralegals and junior associates, whose work often involves research and document review, may be the most affected.Skill AdaptationTo remain competitive, legal professionals will need to adapt their skillsets. Emphasis will likely be placed on skills that complement AI, such as critical thinking, creativity, and emotional intelligence. Additionally, the demand for legal professionals with expertise in technology and data analysis is expected to grow.Evolving RolesThe integration of AI into the legal profession may give rise to new roles, such as AI ethics advisors and legal technologists. These professionals will be responsible for ensuring the responsible and ethical use of AI within the industry.ConclusionAI's passage of the Uniform Bar Exam marks a turning point in the legal profession. As AI continues to advance and integrate into the legal and regulatory industry, it will undoubtedly bring about significant changes in the way legal services are delivered and impact the job market. It is crucial for legal professionals and industry stakeholders to embrace this change and adapt accordingly to ensure a successful and equitable transition into the AI-driven future of law.What are your thoughts on AI – is it changing the world of work for the better? From data privacy and formalizing financial resilience, to ensuring umbrella companies are compliant and approving innovative technologies for use, an ever-complex regulatory landscape is emerging. With an increasing amount of adapting technology, laws, and governance, comes the need to secure the right talent to scale for growth, but also to protect your organization best.Submit your vacancy today or view our latest roles here.

How to Negotiate a Salary You Deserve

When seeking a new job, it’s imperative to know the market, understand where you fit within it, and form a realistic salary expectation to stick to. A good talent partner will help you to know your worth within the industry and organization you’re interviewing for and will assist with communicating those expectations back to the hiring manager, but no one is a better advocate for you than you.Learning how to negotiate a salary when you receive a job offer is a vital skill for both now and in the future, and when done appropriately, will put you in a better position not just financially, but also in terms of how valued you feel in your role. We know that feeling appreciated and adequately compensated for our time, effort, and expertise has a direct impact on productivity, engagement, and general happiness within a company, so salary negotiations play an important part for both sides.It can be difficult to communicate those expectations as a professional hoping to onboard with a new company, and there is certainly a residual stigma around speaking about money and asking for more that is hard to overcome. At Larson Maddox, we have observed that professionals who negotiate their salary are presented with a much better job offer, so good communication skills and an understanding of your contribution can really pay off. As a general rule, always assume the offer is up for negotiation. And don’t forget to approach the process with positivity, as chances are the hiring manager isn’t crazy about negotiating, either. Here are our top tips on how to negotiate for the salary you deserve.Know the industry salary trendsTrying to negotiate for a higher salary without being familiar with industry trends will get you off to a bad start. Information is your biggest asset and conducting some research as well as speaking openly to a talent partner that knows your industry, the hiring company, and what you have to offer, will vastly improve your bargaining power. You can be a negotiating pro, but without being able to back up your requests with solid reasoning, it will be harder for the hiring company to take your expectations seriously. Pay particular attention to the most sought-after roles and skills within your industry and think about how your experience relates. Being able to recognize when your skills are transferable to a particularly in-demand area will add to your negotiation power. Start negotiating only when you have a firm offerThere is a process to be followed when it comes to receiving and accepting a job offer and understanding the etiquette will help your negotiation when the time comes, we also look at how to decide if a job offer is worth taking. If you are interested in a position but it doesn’t meet your salary expectation, resist the temptation to bargain until the company has given you a formal offer. This is your signal that your skills, expertise, and personality are a strong match for the business and the role and is a great asset to you when it’s time to tell them why you’re worth the higher salary. Once the ball is in your court, you can use the fact that they believe you’re right for the job along with your understanding of the industry and the market to your advantage, making it harder for them to dismiss your requirements.It can also be worthwhile to take a reasonable amount of time to consider the offer rather than jump into negotiations. Tell the hiring manager that you’re serious about the offer and the position, but that you need some time to consider the whole picture. Be gracious and enthusiastic but take the time you need to prepare for negotiations and signal to them that there may be elements of the offer that don’t align with your requirements. Chances are they’ll have a counteroffer in mind for you.Build the business caseIn order for a company to seriously consider your request for an increased salary offer, it must make commercial sense for the business. Make a strong case, show that you understand the company's current financial situation, and know who has the power to negotiate. While likeability shouldn’t be underestimated in the hiring process and a large part of your job offer will be to do with character fit, it’s not enough for them to like you when it comes to financial compensation. They have to believe your worth in fiscal terms, so don’t expect your personal compatibility to get you the salary increase you want. Instead, explain precisely why your requirements are justified in a business sense; your glowing personality will just make them glad your business case checked out.Suggest an exact number for your salaryTime is of the essence, and hiring managers are particularly strapped for it while conducting interviews alongside their other duties. Therefore, they’ll likely appreciate a direct approach to your negotiation in terms of giving them the exact offer you’re looking for. It can be a powerful strategy in that it keeps the ball rolling and avoids pointless back and forth. Many studies suggest that candidates who use a specific number end up with a final offer much closer to the figure they were hoping for. Your potential employer will assume you have done your research on your market value and want to stay competitive in their offer. Don't suggest a range – you will always get offered the lowest if the manager knows there's room to haggle down.Reveal your current salary when negotiatingOutside the US, the hiring manager may ask what you are currently earning, which can be awkward if you feel you are currently being underpaid. It might be tempting to lie and state a higher salary more in line with what you’re seeking, but if you're unhappy with your current pay, it can be valuable to tell them why. Include all your benefits, bonuses and confidently explain the figure you're hoping for while making the case for why. If anything, they’ll have a more genuine understanding of what you know your worth to be, and that salary is important enough for you to walk away from a role that isn’t aligned with your requirements.Have a walk away pointKnow your limits and your expectations and keep them firmly in mind. Have a pre-considered ‘walk away’ point - the figure you’re absolutely unwilling to drop below. Base this on your financial need and the market value of the role, but keep in mind the role itself. Why are you interviewing for the position in the first place? Is your passion for the work worth lowering your salary expectations? Get help negotiating your salarySpeaking with a specialist talent partner will help you understand your worth in the context of current industry trends and the wider job market, too. At Larson Maddox, we can evaluate your profile against the wider talent pool, as well as align your expectations with that of our current database of hiring companies. We'll also help you pitch your value at the right price during the salary negotiation process, giving you the best chance to make your next position a rewarding and fulfilling one.
