The Compensation and Benefits Survey is now online! PSALA members should receive an invitation email from Gallagher Services regarding participation in the 2015 Compensation and Benefits Survey. This benefits section is completely new, with expanded content and a new online interface. The process will run smoother than with the previous format.

The Compensation and Benefits survey is a valuable tool that helps drive compensation and benefits decisions for law firms in the Puget Sound area. The survey contains relevant, timely, local data to enable law firms to remain competitive. The survey is local and free to participate. Survey participants receive a significant discount on the purchase price.

Pricing is the same as last year.
