Looking for an Edge in the Talent Competitions? ALA Can Help.

As firms struggle with hiring and retaining staff, you need all the information you can gather to remain competitive. ALA’s 2023 Compensation and Benefits Survey can help.

Our annual comprehensive report is filled with data from nearly 1,000 law firms across the country featuring over 400 pages of information. It’s an essential tool to see how your firm stacks up in relation to compensation and benefits. Data is further broken down by region, state and metro area, making it even easier to compare your firm against competitors.

Firms with 100 or more attorneys are encouraged to purchase the bundle that includes the 2023 Large Firm Key Staff Compensation Survey Report, which contains data for director-level and C-suite positions in large law firms. Purchasers of the surveys consider them a valuable tool in determining compensation for new and existing positions in their firms. Visit to order both reports and download the Executive Summary.

ALA Celebrates National Native American Heritage Month

November is National Native American Heritage Month, when we celebrate the contributions Native Americans have made to the history and culture of the United States. In 1990, President George H. W. Bush was the first to declare the occasion, and it has continued every year since. The U.S. Department of the Interior designated this year’s theme to be Celebrating Tribal Sovereignty and Identity, recognizing that any decisions about tribes must be made with their participation and consent.
