I figure this to be the result of conservative 2L SA hiring and underestimating hiring needs (better to hire too little, than to be stuck with unneeded associates). What are your thoughts?
Definitely possible. And 2014 looks like it could be a big year
Can you expand on this at all? Do you mean that firms are killing it and are gonna need more bodies?
Perhaps itbdvorm has a different source and can expand some more, but from what I know it's widely believed that 2014 will be a killer year for M&A and IPOs.
That's basically it. Market seems frothy so far.
