  • Calm down!

    Please don't forget that copies of The Lawyer may fall into non-legal hands - you are embarrasing the profession by reporting this story in such overblown and exaggerated terms - come on, an "anxious" and "agonising" wait (of a whole month!) to find out of their already very substantial salaries will be hiked up even more? I can't imagine any CC associates are having to switch to own-brand baked beans as the credit crunch bites, and the ones who mortgaged themselves to the brink of their pay packets have only themselves to blame. Agonising is being locked in a cellar for 24 years, not wondering if you can afford a new kitchen.

    Bad journalism that gives us all a bad name.

  • CC associates in agony

    The lawyer has a sensational talent for sensationalism. That being the case I decided to contact my friends at CC to verify the levels of anxiety on the ground. I've heard nothing back yet. I suspect they are in too much agony to reply.

  • What about the rest?

    What about the support staff? These rises, although defendable with reason, will only broaden the gap between the lawyers and non fee-earners in the company (and other law firms). This will not help bringing both groups together and I hope lawyers all agree that although they bring in the money, it's the support structure of the firm who will be key in establishing competitive advantage the coming years.

  • Pay deals done

    I work in the support side, and just got a 4% increase. Plus a bonus,so it does seem that they are looking after the support staff too.
