When it comes to negotiating salary, given the current recruitment market for in-house lawyers is buoyant  a rough finger in the air would be that individuals are looking for at least a 10% increase on their current salary. Although moving roles should not just be about the money most people do recognise that this is when a salary increase can be achieved and therefore it is a major factor.
