Welcome to the updated Heat Legal Salary Survey 2023

As we enter the second-half of the year, it has become clear that, with the market changing so rapidly, one Salary Survey to cover the entire duration of the year isn’t sufficient: evolving market conditions and impacts in the wider social and economic landscape have led us to release a mid-year update to our 2023 Salary Survey.

The Heat Legal Salary Survey is your one-stop, definitive guide to salaries and pay trends for 2023, ranging from assistant to partner-level, and covering the principal regions within the UK. Our survey aggregates and analyses UK-wide salary data, market trends, and industry change to deliver a comprehensive overview of the sector and covers a wide range of salaries, including Paralegals & Business Support, Solicitor & Legal Executives, Associates, Legal Director & Counsel, and Partners.

For employers, our survey is the best way to ensure you are offering competitive salaries to retain and attract the best Legal talent and gives sector-specific insights into market trends. For Legal professionals looking to take their next career step, our survey is a powerful tool that can help you benchmark your salary, negotiate a pay rise, or discover what other opportunities are available in the industry.
