The Legal Firm of Choice reports are designed to give law firms and legal recruitment firms visibility on the perceptions of legal professionals towards their current firm and their priorities when looking for a role.
Our clients use this report to analyse their position in the recruitment market to ensure they are able to continue to satisfy their existing employees and guide their strategy in a direction that will attract other legal professionals to their firm.
The questionnaire for this research is conducted annually in partnership with Lawyers Weekly in June each year via Legal Firm of Choice survey with the results available from August. The questionnaire surveys legal professionals across Australia on their attitudes towards their current firm over a number of key performance areas and their priorities if they were to switch firms.
The results of the questionnaire are analysed by our market research professionals to produce the Legal Firm of Choice report that provides granular detail into the performance of Australia’s leading legal firms, detailed profiles of brokers likely to switch and the state of the recruitment market.
“Surveyed legal professionals are generally satisfied with their legal firm, with just over half indicating that they are very satisfied. However, there remains a small proportion who are ambivalent or dissatisfied working for their current firm.
This year’s Legal Firm of Choice report shows that legal firms and recruiters need to understand their brokers if they want to recruit and retain talent in the legal industry. In particular, fostering a positive and appealing culture is crucial for legal firms looking to attract and retain quality staff and an area legal firms are underperforming in the current market.
