Partners want junior pay freeze extension
The latest Legal Week Big Question survey has found that many partners believe assistants should either definitely or probably see the 2009 pay freeze introduced at most large law firms extended in 2010. More than a quarter (27%) said they 'very much' believe the freeze should continue, with a similar number (24%) claiming this should 'probably' happen. The majority of respondents (around one third) had mixed feelings on the subject, leaving only 15% strongly arguing that the freeze should not continue.
