We aim to pair the right talent with the right law firm but further than that we work hard to equip those we service with the right knowledge to help them achieve their commercial goals. That’s why, each year, we carry out in-depth research to better understand the state of the market so that we can effectively advise the lawyers and law firms we work with.  

Our 2021 market research revealed that almost half of lawyers don’t believe they are paid fairly. However, because firms are willing to pay to secure the right people, it’s never been a more important time to understand current market rates and whether you’re being paid enough.   

We have thoroughly researched the market and compiled a breakdown of salary by PQE level to help you understand exactly where you sit compared to other childcare lawyers.
