Over 350 in-house lawyers from Northampton up to Newcastle responded to our most recent salary survey. The full results per region (NW, Yorkshire and The Midlands) can be found at http://www.bcllegal.com/salary-surveys .
Here is a bit of an over view.
Across the regions in 2011 over 75% of in-house lawyers received a bonus.
Taking the 3 regions that we surveyed in to account:
The average bonus as a % of salary for Solicitor’s between NQ and 5 year’s PQE was 10%
The average bonus as a % of salary for Solicitor’s between 6 and 12 year’s PQE was 14%
The average bonus as a % of salary for Solicitor’s with 13 year’s PQE + was 23%
In addition, compared to last year:
60% of the recipients saw an overall increase in their total package
30% of the recipients saw their package stay the same
10% of the recipients saw their package decrease
So it’s good to see that in-house lawyers are being remunerated for the hard work that they put in and that salaries for most are on the up!
