*Results by firm size: The firm size brackets set below are subject to modification depending on the total number of firm size participants.  Our survey grows stronger with consistent annual participation.  Even if your firm does not wish to purchase the results, you can still participate in the survey.  The data that you provide is a contribution to our legal community which is greatly appreciated by your fellow professionals who rely heavily on the results.   


You do not have to purchase the results to participate in the salary survey, nor must you participate to purchase the results (although price does vary by participation and membership). 

Please note the survey reporting period ends March 31st! RubinBrown, the survey administrator, will send confirmation of receipt to the contact for your firm once your data is submitted for both sections of the survey.

In addition, save the date: May 16, 2018 for the Survey Results Review & Analysis Meeting by RubinBrown, LLP.  All participants (whether purchased or just participated) will be invited to an in-depth review and analysis of the results, by RubinBrown, LLP.
