Default Legal Salaries

HI All

Does anyone know of any good links /websites where you can obtain indicative legal salaries for the Middle East?

I have obtained various Salary Surveys from recruitment companies over the years but they are a little out of date at the moment.

THANKS

Interesting reading ! Some of the Construction sector salaries look a bit low but perhaps it is reflecting the current market conditions.

If you PM me with an email address I can supply an up to date in house lawyer salary survey for the GCC - pretty accurate from what I can see - the statistics to back the figures are quoted, that is how many people they interviewed within a PQE range to arrive at salary band.

Because they earn an awful lot of money. Our in-house lawyer has an inflated salary grade approximately 4 levels (read 20 yrs experience) more than a more qualified engineer with same years of experience, simply so that the company can match the competitive rates. Think CEO level of salary for a 15yr experienced lawyer.

yes, I know that. But it's not exactly a big deal is it? you could say the same about bankers (albeit our salaries are a bit less).

I also know partners in law firms who - in my opinion - don't earn a lot of money. Especially when we finish all day meetings at 10pm and say to them, OK, so you'll have all the drafting done for us in the morning? They swallow hard and say yes every time.

In house is a different story. They do **** all and mostly sub it out to their mates.

Nope - but in fairness when work is outsourced it needs to be instructed and then checked when received. External lawyers when they work for us only draft they don't make the commercial decisions or create the risk profile.That is where the expertise is in any given transaction.
