We actually know how the business works. It is our business to know. I billed literally > than 5 times my salary last year. My team and I got a nice fat bonus. Covid wasn't even a thing lol.

Nobody gives a flying f uck what objective philosophical value you ascribe to legal services. All we care about is how much the market is willing to pay for it.

We work for clients that can afford to pay very generously. Believe me, their paying their own executives even fatter stacks of cash and benefits. If you don't have clients that can pay that well, then sorry to say, your firm or your firm's services are s hit.

You definitely could, and I'm sure your lawyer(s) would be happy to walk you through it. But it's more likely you'll get bored hearing the explanations - they can be pretty technical and may not be that interesting to a non-lawyer.

s://.personneltoday.com/hr/senior-partner-criticises-high-pay-for-new-lawyers/

Quote:
Senior partner at Pinsent Masons Richard Foley, told the Innovative Lawyers Summit on 22 October that six-figure salaries for newly qualified lawyers were unjustifiable.

He said: “You see stuff in the press about £125k as a starting salary for an NQ [newly qualified lawyer] … If I was on the other side of the table, I would be thinking how much more value am I going to get from that person?”

Foley added: “The levels of pay in major private practice law firms are completely unsustainable.”
I look forward to the day when NQ pay is S$3k across the board
