Slaughters raised NQ salaries to £65,000 earlier this year (30 April 2014). A number of other firms have also hiked salaries to match the magic circle this year, including Herbert Smith Freehills (2 June 2014) and Hogan Lovells (27 May 2014).
Norton Rose Fulbright also announced increased trainee wages. First-year trainees will now take home £39,500, an increase of £1,500. Wages remained static in 2013, standing at £38,000 having risen from £37,000 the previous year (13 July 2012).
