- Top Tier primary includes large regional and national firms in Toronto, but also may include leading specialist boutiques where compensation will commonly match their large firm counterparts. Top Tier does not include certain Toronto offices where certain associates may be compensated on a matching basis with their Calgary, Vancouver, or other international market pay scale.
- Mid-Market can include regional firms, though may also include top firms in larger, secondary markets as well.
- Small Firms can include smaller firms in all parts of Ontario, particularly where there may not be more than one associate per year of call within the firm. Compensation structures in smaller firms are often tailored to the individual, and base salary may form a smaller component of total compensation, where there may be bonuses for performance above thresholds (billable hours and/or revenue targets).
