Comprehensive study of NZ law firm salaries and HR challenges now open

by Sol Dolor31 Jan 2018
A comprehensive survey into the salaries, benefits and HR challenges facing New Zealand law firms is open for participation until 18 February.

The survey, conducted by the Australasian Legal Practice Management Association (ALPMA) and McLeod Duminy, will gather data on salaries for more than 55 legal, management, and support roles. The data will be analysed by region and firm size.

Participants in the survey, which can be used to compare firm compensation strategies, will get a complimentary copy of the report by 23 March. The survey is usually available to firms that don’t participate for $550 (ALPMA members) or $2,200 (non-ALPMA members).

In last year’s study, 69 law firms in New Zealand participated. The study found that there was still a wide gender gap at the senior ranks in law firms in New Zealand. This year’s survey has been expanded to cover bonuses and parental leave data.

The survey can be completed here.
