Younger lawyers are the least satisfied of all

The results from the 2019 Legal Firm of Choice Survey are in, and Momentum Intelligence head of research Michael Johnson joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this week’s episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show to discuss satisfaction levels, or lack thereof.

Michael outlines the attitudes, perceptions and priorities of legal professionals as identified in this year’s survey. Also, in unveiling younger practitioners (i.e. those with one to three years of experience) as the least satisfied demographic, he explains the possible contributing factors for such dissatisfaction and suggests proactive measures that firms can and should be taking to help those coming through the ranks to remain satisfied throughout their legal career.
