2005 June - The 2005 Canadian Lawyer compensation survey
Times are getting tougher for solo practitioners and lawyers in small firms, according to our latest survey of lawyer and staff compensation. In 2005 so far, net profits are down almost 10 percent. Layoffs aren’t expected but neither are additional hirings. Starting salaries are higher in most years of call but salaries at the top end are much lower than last year.
The survey is the most recent information available.
