Charge Out Rate Survey & Business Services Compensation and Benefits Survey

  • July 17, 2019
Benchmark yourself against other BC law firms with these two valuable reports!

Each year, CBABC partners with the BC Legal Management Association (BCLMA) to produce and distribute two surveys that help BC’s law firms understand the competitive landscape for charge-out rates and business services compensation and benefits (formerly referred to as support staff compensation).

Charge-Out Rate Survey

The report includes charge-out rates for lawyers (by year of call), support staff, and articling students. Also included: an analysis of the number
of hours paralegals are expected to charge to client accounts each year.

Business Services Compensation and Benefits Survey

Broken down by firm size and geographic location, this report includes current salaries and bonuses on 70+ administrative positions as well as market information on group insurance, retirement benefits and compensation best practices.

New this year

BCLMA has re-branded the compensation survey to more accurately reflect the diversity of Law Firm administrative positions. The new name is the Business Services Compensation & Benefits Survey. The 2019 survey includes a new position, titled Firm Administrator/Office Manager.
