According to the number of advertised openings in the biotech sector appearing in online job databases, the pace of hiring in the first quarter of 2012 has significantly overtaken the last quarter of 2011. Monster.com reportedly had 493 openings at the 25 largest biotechnology companies as compared to 264 available at the end of 2011. Still, several major pharmaceutical and life sciences companies have apparently indicated they will be restructuring and reducing their work forces to save millions in overhead in the next few years.

"Lexology is a quick and useful indicator of developments in the legal sphere. It alerts me to changes taking place in the legal environment in South Africa that I may not otherwise have spotted or had immediate access to as a company lawyer. It definitely serves as a trigger for me to investigate such changes in the legal landscape in South Africa as they may affect my work and that of my employer. I believe that receiving Lexology provides me with a competitive advantage."
