In Autumn 2018 we asked over 2,000 legal professionals from a variety of locations, sectors and PQE levels to share details of their working lives.
Our survey highlighted that salary rises and benefits in the legal profession have thrived despite the climate of economic and political uncertainty. 58% of our respondents received a salary increase this year and 48% took home a bonus.
Whilst this is positive, the report also revealed that the gender pay gap has continued to widen year on year. Significantly, this is seen across the majority of practice areas and at every PQE level from NQ-10 years. The gap may be starting to close marginally after 10+ years, however men still out-earn women in similar roles by 18%.
