NQ LEADING LAWYERS TRAINING

THE LEADERSHIP GAP

The current talent retention problem in the legal sector has escalated into a costly salary war between firms, with top of the market NQ salaries tipping £179,000.

 

One of the many consequences of mass movement in the sector is that firms are struggling to fill mid-level associate positions, and both junior lawyers and senior leaders are overburdened as a result - all of which is compounding the retention and mental health crisis. 

 

Firms are also struggling to close widening generational gaps between senior and junior leaders, with many firms expressing genuine concern over their future sustainability and competitiveness. 

 

As well as being ‘stuck in the middle’, HR teams are facing additional pressure due to increased regulatory focus by the SRA on mental health and workplace culture.
