Salary data – we all want it, but it can be hard to come by for those working in legal finance.

ILFM Legal Finance Salary Survey 2024

Generic accountancy salary benchmarking will include data gathered from a wide range of industries, some of which will drag the averages down.

We therefore need your help as we compile the data for our 2024 Legal Accounts Salary Survey, with the results to be published in the June/July issue of the Legal Abacus.

Please rest assured, the survey is 100% confidential. You don’t need to enter any contact details nor identifiable information. It takes around 2 minutes to complete and every response helps to increase the accuracy of the results.

If you struggle to find accurate data in your region, please share the link widely with your peers and contacts at neighbouring firms. Our aim is to collate sufficient data from across the country with the results displayed by region.

2023 has been a far slower year for hiring within legal finance than the prior two years and we anticipate that salary growth will have been negatively impacted as a result. Our survey will highlight such trends, with additional insights around financial bonuses, staff retention rates and more.  

Participants also have the option to enter a prize draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher and a £50 donation to a charity of your choosing.
