2024 TLOMA Total Rewards, Associate and Business Services Surveys

For over 30 years, our compensation surveys have been established as the primary source of compensation benchmarking information for the Canadian legal community, with 50 firms participating annually: representing firms of all sizes and areas of practice specializations.

What participate?

  • Reduced pricing structure for participating firms (50% savings)
  • Provides market-based anchors to support compensation-related decisions regarding “how much” and “how to” pay 
  • Understand if your firm is investing its financial resources/budgets on the right components of your total rewards portfolio?
  • Supports good governance and prepares your firm for the age of pay transparency

For the 2024 compensation cycle, we will be conducting the following survey modules:
