In-house legal departments for U.S. companies are in need of lawyers with experience in business growth, executive compensation and labor and employment disputes, according to a new study. And to bring those lawyers in, companies will have to offer competitive salaries and benefits.

“A key part of attracting the best people is paying them well­—at least as much as your competitors are offering,” said the study, which was compiled by legal consultancy Robert Half Legal. The report, titled the “2018 Salary Guide,” is meant to help legal department and law firm managers attract legal talent in 2018. It offers salary estimates for a variety of legal jobs, from general counsel to first-year associate, from e-discovery director to filing clerk. The guide also offers information on what types of benefits are expected in today’s legal workplace. The data is based on a survey of 200 lawyers in the “largest law firms and companies” in the United States.
