  • "If you told each NQ at the start of their training contract what the pay rates were for each team, higher in corporate transactional and lower in commoditised litigation, and then asked them to choose what seats they would like to sit in, you might end up with no NQs in less profitable areas of law. Drastic indeed."

    Slashing NQ salaries to £50K?

    And you wonder why so few aspiring solicitors want to get involved in criminal law; an area where an NQ may get £25K, if lucky.
