Australia | Law firms salary and benefits report 2022

The past financial year marked another extraordinary one for the legal industry with hiring across the market growing at levels unseen for a decade. Law firms of all sizes faced multiple pressure points. It was the perfect storm that exacerbated the war for talent that we are so often reading and hearing about. In response, law firms increased salaries significantly, with some lawyers reporting increases of 20% over the past 12 months.

Hayden Gordine, Head of Taylor Root Australia commented that as law firms and corporates emerged from the worst of the pandemic, demand for legal services continued to grow resulting in law firms aggressively hiring associates.
