The cautious approach
Firms have been reluctant to increase assistant pay, according to the latest Garfield Robbins International salary survey. Nichola Koszary and Kara Penridge report
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.
