All's fair in love and law

YOUR report, "Law Society staff face huge pay cuts in new regime" (The Lawyer, 8 February), failed to mention the fact that roughly the same number of staff have received salary increases as have had their pay frozen. There is no plan to reduce staff numbers as a result of the new pay system.

Our objective is to have a pay system that pays good salaries for good performance, which are in line with what other good employers would pay for similar posts outside the Law Society.
