Take part in 2019 Benchmarking

When taking part make sure you have this data to complete the survey

Please use your latest available financial information - this does not need to be audited or approved, as long as you are comfortable with the figures.

Comparative information for the prior period is required for some questions and we recommend that you have the following data at hand:

  • turnover
  • profit - including that available for share amongst top-tier partners and all partners
  • staff costs
  • number of staff - split by support staff and fee earning staff (including paralegals)
  • number of partners and top-tier partners
  • accrued income and work-in-progress
  • amounts owed by clients
  • professional indemnity premium paid
  • breakdown of partner capital movements.

You do not have to complete the survey in one go. If you need to leave the survey before you have finished, please make sure you fill out all the questions on the page you are working on and click next, all your answers will automatically save. Contact us if you have any questions.
