Law firms pay lawyers with six years of experience up to around Rs 30 lakh per annum in Mumbai, revealed analysis of data collected in Legally India’s associate survey, as first published in Mint today.

The data, compiled from more than 50 survey responses for Delhi and Mumbai in 2010, also revealed that there is a significant pay gap between salaries offered in Delhi and Mumbai at all levels.

Fresher salaries have increased hugely, having in many cases doubled from five years ago.
