The Inside Story of Legal in Malaysia

The Inside Story of Legal in Malaysia

While many sectors continue to be impacted by the events of this year, Malaysia’s legal sector has remained a key function through times of crisis.

The increased importance of regulatory oversight as part of recent reforms, for example, now also applies to non-financial businesses, leading to an increased demand for legal professionals with experience in the field of ABAC (Anti-Bribery Anti-Corruption). Similarly, the rapid digitalisation of workplaces in light of movement restrictions has led to a heightened need for legal counsel with domain knowledge in GDPR and PDPA regulations. The legal function has also seen a healthy and continued demand in tandem with the movement of human capital in the market as companies continue cutting costs to weather the downturn.

These are some of the findings from The Inside Story of Malaysia, a monthly regional recruitment analysis undertaken by global recruitment expert Hays. Focusing on the Legal sector, this month’s analysis covers:

• Market overview of the steady and continued growth seen across the legal function

• Roles and skills in demand

• How organisations are working to attract top talent

• Future trends
