Lawyers in Australia Face Big Decisions: Which Firms to Join, Which to Leave?

Lawyers in Australia Face Big Decisions: Which Firms to Join, Which to Leave? 2

Last week, Lawyers Weekly and Momentum Intelligence released their rankings of the Top 25 Attraction Firms for 2022-23. The annual survey is part of the Legal Firm of Choice Survey, which aims to uncover the most desirable private legal practices throughout Australia.

Over 462 private practice and in-house legal professionals were surveyed between November 14th and December 13th, 2022, providing insight into the attitudes, priorities, and perceptions of the legal industry in Australia.

Interestingly, a quarter of lawyers plan to jump ship from their current firms in the near future.

The rankings shed light on which firms lawyers would most like to move to, while also revealing which professionals are most likely to leave soon.

For the first time, the Legal Firm of Choice Survey also polled in-house respondents to gain a better understanding of which law firms law departments engaged and how they rated their performance.

Allens came out in the top spot.

The survey found that legal professionals aged 18 to 29, including students, graduates, junior lawyers, and other staff, prefer to work at the following firms (in order of first to last):

Allens, Clayton Utz, Hall & Wilcox, Ashurst, King & Wood Mallesons, Herbert Smith Freehills, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, HWL Ebsworth, MinterEllison, and Gilbert + Tobin.

So there’s the list. Make your decision based on your own inquiries – looking before leaping.
