What are the locum rates of pay for a solicitor or lawyer?
This is a difficult question to answer but we a produce a monthly guide which you can access by clicking here.
The hourly or daily rate is usually a matter of negotiation between the parties although we very often specify an hourly rate based on discussions with our client before an introduction is made.
A lot of locums have an hourly rate they use to start negotiations and this tends to vary according to the length of an assignment. Longer assignments can sometimes attract lower hourly rates but not always.
Rates of pay can depend on the time of year, level of demand, availability of locums and the location of the assignment.
