Exclusive research has revealed the firms deemed most attractive by legal professionals located in the Sunshine State.

For the sixth consecutive year, Lawyers Weekly has unveiled its Top 25 Attraction Firms ranking, showcasing the most sought-after legal employers across the country.

Earlier this week, Lawyers Weekly broke down the stats on a state-by-state basis, and uncovered the five firms voted most attractive by legal professionals in NSW and those voted most attractive by legal professionals in Victoria.

Next up to be revealed is those deemed most attractive in Queensland, with the results indicating a slight difference in the perception of firms with offices in the Sunshine State.


When asked: “Which firm would you consider a move to if you ever decided to leave your current firm?”, the majority of Queensland respondents selected King & Wood Mallesons.

Coming in at second place for Queensland was MinterEllison, followed by Clayton Utz.

In fourth was Corrs Chambers Westgarth and rounding out the top five was Allens.

Lawyers Weekly will reveal those deemed most sought-after in South Australia and Western Australia over the coming days.

The ranking, which is in partnership with Momentum Intelligence, forms part of a research report that seeks to understand the key drivers legal professionals have when choosing to either stay at their firm or leave. It also offers insight into the firms leading the pack in terms of attraction, as well as which is front of mind to all legal professionals when they consider switching firms.

While those who made the cut in this year’s Top 25 Attraction Firms have cemented their position as being a sought-after employer nationwide, breaking down the figures by state offers a different picture as to what is thought to be the firm lawyers would most want to join if they were to leave their current place of employment.
