2018

"Latham pays extremely well and I think that it is at the top of the market for employee remuneration."
Second year trainee, London
"The pay is at, or very near, market-leading levels (especially at the new qualifier level) so there can be no complaints."
First year trainee, London
"The trainee salary is at the top end of the market and the new qualifier salary is significantly higher than at Magic Circle firms. The pay and bonuses are certainly a selling point for the firm."
Second year trainee, London
"I think the trainee salaries are a little behind some firms that are considered to be our competitors. The salary on qualification and high retention rate go a long way to making up for this, though."
Second year trainee, London

2016

"Pay is excellent, particularly when qualified."
First year trainee, London
"Unfortunately no trainee bonus. But new qualifier salaries in London are top of the market and have just been increased to match the Cravath New York pay scale (US$180,000 starting salary)."
Second year trainee, London / Hong Kong
"Great pay. Total transparency."
First year trainee, London
"You're paid for the top of the market and you earn it."
Second year trainee, London
"Pay is top market."
First year trainee, London
"Trainees don't get bonuses but as far as I know the associates are happy with their bonuses."
First year trainee, London

2015

"I think that the trainee salary is at the top end of the City. Trainees do not get bonuses currently as the firm believes it isn't conducive to learning and development, as the bonus structure is based largely on hours billed. The NQ salary is excellent."
Second year trainee, London
"I feel that I have a very competitive salary, and at the firm we are at the very top for qualification salaries."
First year trainee, London
