CORRS Chambers Westgarth has confirmed a pay freeze for all staff this coming financial year. The firm’s decision was induced by economic and legal market indicators, it said today.
Corrs partner and CEO John W.H. Denton said: “Our decision reflects the economic climate and indications of a structural shift in the legal market, which will have implications for the short and medium term. We remain committed to the career progression of our people and their professional development”.
The move follows the closure of the firm’s Gold Coast office and just under 50 redundancies across numerous offices.
