2015 Compensation Survey - now open

The most requested survey of the year, Canadian Lawyer’s annual Compensation Survey is the only one of its kind in Canada, providing unique insight into the ways in which partners, associates, and in-house counsel are compensated across the country. At annual compensation review time as well as when hiring laterals, this survey is indispensable for managing partners, chief legal officers, partners, associates, and staff alike.

This year, we have expanded the survey to include staff lawyers and of counsel. These two growing categories within firms have never been measured before and we thought it was time.

Your participation in this survey is extremely important. Canadian Lawyer needs to compile as accurate a picture as possible in as many sectors as possible, so the results will be accurate and useful to you. We are looking for managing partners and the heads of corporate legal departments of all shapes and sizes to take a few minutes to fill out the questionnaire.


As the survey online must be filled out all at once and we do ask for financial information that may require some work prior to filling it out, we have provided pdfs of the questions to help you prepare. If you are a law firm click here to download the questions. If you are an in-house legal department click here.

Survey closes May 4.  Results will appear in the July 2015 issue of Canadian Lawyer.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to participate.
