Legal – Compensation and Market Trends Report 2013

Our 2013 Mid-Year Report combines a review of the prevailing conditions in the in-house legal recruitment market with the results of a comprehensive compensation survey of lawyers registered with Barclay Simpson. The results of the survey together with our own experience allows us to report that, in spite of tight corporate cost controls, confidence and prospects in the in-house legal recruitment market are improving. We hope you will find the conclusions interesting.

  • New vacancies amongst our sample companies increased by 25% between the second half of 2012 and the first half of 2013.   
  • Whilst averages are made up of a wide range of individual experiences, the average salary increase for lawyers changing jobs is currently 14% whilst the average increase for those staying with their existing employer is 5%.
  • 33% of lawyers surveyed had changed employer in the last 12 months. This cannot be considered representative of all in-house lawyers but has risen since the previous year.
