Lawyer loyalty to law firms hits rock bottom

November 6, 2007 The days of lifelong allegiance to a law firm are at end, according to a survey published today revealing that fewer than one in five assistants intend to be in their jobs in five years' time. The survey of 2,225 assistant solicitors working at large UK and US law firms found that the loyalty of assistants towards their firms is extremely low despite a year of hefty salary rises. Fewer than 20 per cent of junior assistants (0-2 years’ qualified) plan to be at their current firm in five years time, despite average pay increases of more than 25 per cent in the last two years.
