UK law firms disclose gender pay gap numbers, but  don’t reveal US data

Dozens of law firms in the United Kingdom are disclosing information on the pay gap between male and female employees as a result of regulations that apply to businesses with more than 250 employees.

Some U.K. law firms have gone beyond the law’s requirements to report on the pay gap between male and female partners, the American Lawyer reports. But firms contacted by the American Lawyer indicated they have no plans to report pay gap information for their U.S. offices.

Among the firms reporting U.K. pay gaps for partners are:

• Reed Smith: The average male partner is paid 0.8 percent more and receives a bonus that is 21.5 percent higher than the average female partner

• Norton Rose: The average male partner has a base paycheck 19 percent higher than the average female partner, but the average female partner had a bonus 38 percent higher than the average male partner.

• Dentons: The average male partner made 23 percent more than the average female partner. The figure is based on “fixed and variable payments.”

• Eversheds Sutherland: The average male lawyer employee made 4.8 percent more than the average female lawyer employee, and the average male lawyer employee made 18.2 percent more in bonuses. The average female equity partner made 10.3 percent more than the average male equity partner. The average fixed-share male partner made 4.5 percent more in pay than the average female fixed-share partner, and 10 percent more in bonuses.

• Clifford Chance: The average male partner makes 27.3 percent more than the average female partner.
