According to the Legal Week, the majority of London firms have «unfrozen» junior lawyers’ salaries (quotations are here). Thus, the pay raise does not exceed 3%.
Taking into account the partners’ feedback about the increase of workload particularly for the category of the «juniors», in my opinion, we should expect pay raise for this category of lawyers with us, as well. However, the “price of an issue” will be different, and, as usual with us, it will entail demands for pay raises from the outside by other legal professionals.
So, stay tuned! Grades — all for us!
