Why do lawyers switch firms?

Why do lawyers switch firms?


With the legal profession more competitive than ever, lawyers have an abundance of choices available when looking to join or switch firms.

Lawyers Weekly, in partnership with Momentum Intelligence, is set to uncover the key factors that influence a legal professional’s decision to join or switch law firms in a survey asking just that.

The Lawyers Weekly Legal Firm of Choice Survey 2017 is now open, and is set to provide a pivotal insight into which firms offer the most comprehensive working environment for legal professionals.

Going beyond purely the firm’s brand, we want to hear from you on how central training support, information technology, human resources, career advancements opportunities and culture – among many other factors – are in your decision-making to join or switch firms.

It is open to all legal professionals in Australia.

The survey is also the key driver of the Top 25 Attraction Firms ranking.

The annual Top 25 Attraction Firms ranking is based on the results from one question in the Legal Firm of Choice Survey, which asks: ‘Which firms would you most likely consider a move to if you ever decided to leave your current firm?’, with respondents able to select more than one firm.

Last year, Herbert Smith Freehills took out the top spot, followed by King & Wood Mallesons, Allens, MinterEllison and Ashurst.

To share your views, head to the survey and help us understand the demands and expectations of the legal industry.

The survey will only take a few minutes to complete, with those who fill it out in with a chance to win a case of Bollinger.

To fill out the survey, click here before Friday, 25 August 2017.
