The EXSM survey is designed for middle to top tier law firms that are regional, national or global in scope. Group members typically have from several hundred to several thousand attorneys and a comparable number of staff members that provide support in administering all aspects of the firm’s operations.
This benchmark survey allows law firm participants to view job data on the national, regional or metropolitan level as well as by firm size. Targeting executive and senior administrative management positions at top tier law firms, this report includes over 75 top management administrative (non-lawyer) positions at the Chief Officer, Director and Senior Manager level. Data is arrayed by firm size with data samples for key metropolitan areas. Each firm size and metropolitan sample, includes base salary, bonus, estimated total cash compensation and job scope data.
Now entering its 22nd year, this survey currently provides data for key metropolitan areas in the US (Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Palo Alto & Los Angeles), as well as London, England, Paris, France and Beijing, China. In 2019, the survey will expand to include key metropolitan areas in the South and Midwest US. In conjunction with Remington’s Administrative Management & Staff (AMST) Survey, the two surveys combined provide information on a full range of law firm administrative positions from entry-level nonexempt through the Chief Operating Officer.
