Paralegals miss out on 15% Christmas bonus

Not expecting much holiday cheer at this firm's year-end parties!

"Paralegals and professional support lawyers at Slaughter and May will receive a bonus this year of just 3%, despite the rest of the lawyers at the firm pocketing a 15% boost under the firm’s recently introduced scheme.

"Slaughters’ new system will see a flat-rate bonus of 15% of salary paid to all fee-earners; however, paralegals and professional support lawyers are not included in this category. The magic circle firm confirmed they will receive just a fifth of this amount, taking home just 3%."
