The overall trend in respect of salary increases for the year 2003 seems to closely mirror salary increases given by firms in 2002. A survey of 100 UK and US law firms in London by Garfield Robbins International illustrates that there is still a considerable amount of caution in the legal marketplace. Any increases that occurred tended to take place at the mid-ranking and more senior levels of qualification. Increases that occurred in assistant salaries average out at approximately 5% as compared to 10% in 2002, 15% in 2001 and 25% in 2000.
