CHICAGO, ILLINOIS —The Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) has released the full data analyses of its 2015 Law Firm Compensation and Benefits Survey and Large Firm Key Staff Compensation Survey.Every year, as law firm staffing becomes even more competitive and firm management becomes more varied, ALA collects current market intelligence and presents its findings to the legal industry.

“Human resources is a growing part of the business of law, and that was reinforced within our 2015 Compensation and Benefits Study,” said Oliver Yandle, Executive Director of the association. “This research piece indicates the highest compensation growth from 2014 was in human resources positions, and the highest compensation growth for any position within the legal management industry was the Benefits/Coordinator Administrator, growing 18.87 percent since 2014.”

The annual survey reports comparative salary and benefits for 35 law firm management positions by country, region, metro area and firm size, as well as years of experience, education and supervisory responsibility. Wage and bonus information is also included for legal secretaries/administrative assistants and legal assistants/paralegals. The consolidated results encompass data for 6,397 professionals, with additional hourly wage data for 6,079 legal assistants/paralegals and 12,506 legal secretaries/administrative assistants.

“This year's report includes extensive data at both the national and local level,” said ALA member Maria Mason, CLM, Chief Operating Officer at Goodsill Anderson Quinn & Stifel. “The annual survey results are invaluable to my firm for planning purposes and for staying competitive in the marketplace.”

The survey for large firms provides a deep dive into C-level compensation at firms with over 100 lawyers; 41 percent of respondents are firms with over 400 lawyers. The full report presents detailed data on bonuses, other cash compensation and deferred compensation, sorted by position, firm size (number of lawyers), region, state and metropolitan area.

“As the undisputed leader in the business of law and law practice management, our goal is to provide our members with resources, and expert guidance for all aspects of legal management,” Yandle said.

Firms who participated in the 2015 surveys receive customizable reports and digital dashboards using their data to benchmark, as well as a savings on the purchase price of the report.
