2020 TLOMA Associate and Business Services Surveys

Over the last 30 years, our surveys have been established as the primary source of compensation benchmarking information for the Canadian legal community. With more than 60 organizations participating; representing all firm sizes and practice specializations, the reports help users make good strategic business decisions while attracting and retaining top talent.

One of the many advantages of being a member of TLOMA is the ability to participate in the annual Business Services and Associate Compensation Surveys. 

TLOMA Business Services Survey
This survey captures positions in law firms such as support level positions (for example, legal and administrative assistants, and records management and facilities roles), as well as management and law clerk positions.

TLOMA Associate Compensation Survey
This survey provides information on associate salary and bonus data based on Year of Call as well as compensation data at the junior, intermediate and senior levels. The information is also available by practice area such as Litigation and Corporate.

Announcement: Changes to the 2020 edition of the surveys

Normandin Beaudry will be our new supplier for the 2020 and subsequent editions of the compensation surveys.

The following features will be introduced to offer a seamless participant experience, while providing high quality market data:

  • Optimized questionnaires, including all the relevant information and guidelines for participation
  • Detailed job level descriptions to simplify the job matching process
  • Simplified report layouts
  • An online secure platform from which will allow you to retrieve all the necessary documents to complete the surveys and download the results 

    All of the TLOMA Compensation Surveys are specific to law firms and have been developed to provide answers to our membership’s compensation questions. The surveys use a job family and job level methodology, and give the ability to:

  • Benchmark the compensation of your business services, associate and student positions with other firms of similar size;
  • Assist in managing internal pay equity for those firms that do not have a formal job evaluation/grading system; and
  • Provide a geographic break out of data for provinces across Canada.
  • All surveys are easily completed in a user-friendly format and can be purchased for a rate much lower than the industry standard. Moreover, the cost of the surveys, to you, is based on the size of your law firm.

Want to participate? Contact Normandin Beaudry or call a member of NB’s project team (see contact information).
