2014 Compensation Survey

The Canadian Lawyer annual Compensation Survey is the only survey of its kind in Canada, providing unique insight into the ways in which partners, associates, and in-house counsel are compensated across the country. Trying to attract a new partner or associate? Check out our survey to ensure that your offer is attractive. Weighing the attractions of an offer? Again, our survey can help benchmark against the marketplace. And at annual compensation review time, our survey is indispensable for managing partners, chief legal officers, partners, associates and staff alike.

This year's survey again includes lawyers in law firms as well as corporate legal departments. Compensation information is always in great demand from our readers and we believe this format provides insight and information not available anywhere else in Canada.

Your participation in this survey is extremely important. We need to compile as accurate a picture as possible in as many sectors as possible, so that the results will be accurate and useful to you. We are looking for managing partners and the heads of corporate legal departments of all shapes and sizes to take a few minutes to fill out the questionnaire.


As the survey online must be filled out all at once and we do ask for financial information that may require some work before filling out the survey, we have provided pdfs of the questions to help you prepare. If you are a law firm click here to download the questions. If you are an in-house legal department click here.

Once you are ready to fill in the survey, you can find it here.

As always, confidentiality is guaranteed: we use your data only in aggregate and no respondent, firm, or company is identified.

Thank you for taking the time to participate.  Results of the survey will appear in the July 2014 issue of Canadian Lawyer.
