Legal Firm of Choice survey open now
Lawyers Weekly, in partnership with Momentum Intelligence, is pleased to announce the launch of this year’s Legal Firm of Choice survey, capturing insights to determine Australia’s most attractive employer.
The Legal Firm of Choice survey is now open for the 2020 calendar year. The survey seeks to identify the top law firms in Australia that create the best workplaces for all their legal professionals.
The survey offers a unique opportunity for legal professionals to independently, and anonymously, share what their firms do well – and what they don’t.
Last year’s survey, which gathered over 1,000 responses, painted an interesting picture. Some of the key stats included:
- A firm’s quality of leadership and culture were the two main predictors of satisfaction in 2019.
- MinterEllison was found to be the most attractive firm with Herbert Smith Freehills coming in second and King & Wood Mallesons coming in third.
- Legal professionals who are only “satisfied” as opposed to “very satisfied” are five times more likely to leave their firms.
- Running in line with the diminished satisfaction, there were more recruitment approaches than any other year we’ve surveyed.
“The Legal Firm of Choice 2019 showed us that there was a five-year low in the satisfaction of in the legal industry with more legal professionals than ever wanting to change firms,” said Oliver Stofka, research consultant at Momentum Intelligence.
“We’re really excited to see the results of the 2020 survey and how employees believe that their firms have handled themselves in a rather tumultuous year.”
