Following the release of most sought-after legal employers in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia, Lawyers Weekly can now reveal those deemed a cut above the rest in South Australia.

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 saw the reveal of the most attractive firms in NSW, VictoriaQueensland and Western Australia.

When looking at the firms deemed the most attractive by legal professionals in South Australia, there was a clear tie for the number one spot.


MinterEllison, which was crowned number one nationwide in the top 25, has shared the spot in South Australia with HWL Ebsworth Lawyers, which received the same amount of votes from participants in this state.

Coming in second place is Clayton Utz, followed by Herbert Smith Freehills and then King and Wood Mallesons.


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.
