  • So this is where it gets interesting... 2-4% isn't too bad. Better, methinks, than zero?

  • This article isn't very clear - maybe because linklaters hasnt communicated its message very well - but it seems to me that this results in Linklaters now being firmly ahead of the other MC firms on pay?

  • A&O for an NQ is stlll 65k so the best paid at NQ. They have not reduced NQ salaries, just frozen.

    It should be noted that NQ and 1PQE is the same pay.

  • Indeed. Instead of being frozen at last year's salary level/band thus earning exactly the same as last year at the other MC firms, an associate at Linklaters moves up to the next band. The next band up is reduced from last year, but the move up means that you get an increase. For me, its about 4%.

  • NQ and 1 PQE the same pay? That doesn't sound correct at all.

  • Seems to me the legal press is letting A&O, Slaughters, FF and CC off the hook here. They should be taking them to task as to why Links are now paying their associates much more than they are!!!

  • this article is seriously misleading.

    how on earth can this be a pay CUT?!
    Links associates will all progress to a higher pay level meaning they will now take home significantly more than last year. And significantly more than associates at the other MC firms! Links assocs have just stepped ahead of the game.

  • I wonder what their US JD team is getting. Still a massive COLA and bonuses that would make their UK lawyers cry?
