Specialists in the Legal Sector


Providing insight, research and guidance.

Working with over 180 law firms, we conduct industry-wide research and bring industry leaders together to tackle some of the most pressing challenges.

As well as working with Legal 100, national and regional UK firms, we also specialise in working with US-headquartered firms with UK offices. We understand that US firms have a whole host of different things to consider when it comes to benefits and reward, and with our specialist knowledge we provide focused events and wider collateral to support this growing sector.

Senior HR Roundtable Lunches

HR leaders deal with the challenges of employee engagement, changing legislation and benefits day in, day out. Our roundtables are about providing the opportunity to come together with other HR leaders for discussion on what really matters to you, away from the desk and all the distractions of the office.

Under Chatham House Rule we encourage lively, honest and completely confidential debate at our roundtables, and we know our clients appreciate the opportunity to share openly with their industry peers. A few comments from attendees:

“Excellent roundtable discussion on an interesting range of subjects”

“I like the general nature of the discussions and to hear peer views”

“I appreciated that the small size of the group made it easier for conversation”

The agenda is set by you, and we provide lunch as well as a valuable chance to network. Want to know more? See our calendar of upcoming events here.

Working with HR in Law

We’re delighted to have been working with HR in Law, the network for human resources professionals in the legal sector, since 2009, to bring sector-specific research and insight to our law firm clients.

Employee Benefit Focus Group

We believe that knowledge is more powerful when it’s shared, which is why we provide a great support network for HR professionals within the legal sector. The industry is changing all the time, as are benefit opportunities and Government legislation.

Working in partnership with HR in Law, we facilitate employee benefit focus groups. They’re an indispensable way for our clients to stay on top of the most relevant issues, to help make the best choices for their team and their business.

The Focus Group is made up of HR leaders from 14 UK law firms, and meets quarterly. Want to get involved? Email us at letstalkbenefits@aon.co.uk.

Employee Benefits Survey for the legal sector

‘HR in Law regards the Employee Benefits Survey to be an essential part of the tool kit to benchmark benefits strategy.’ Rob Hind, Chairman and Director HR in Law and Head of Human Resources Macfarlanes.

The Employee Benefits Survey takes a comprehensive view of benefits provision in the legal sector, across all areas of health and wellbeing, financial education, pensions, voluntary benefits, agile working and more.

Portus Consulting, now an Aon company, has been running these biennial Surveys with HR in Law since 2009. We break the data down to give you specific details on how both UK and US firms are handling their benefits, giving great insight that supports benchmarking and helps firms plan an effective benefits strategy.


HR in Law run professional briefings, networking events, and the annual HR in Law Awards which recognise the very best people achievements across the industry. We are proud to support HR in Law events throughout the year.

Employee Benefits Research

We go the extra mile to really understand the perception of benefits within the industry, and research is a big factor in supporting this. As well as our biennial survey of employee benefits and trends in the legal sector, which we conduct with our specialist partners HR in Law, we undertake Partner surveys, research into flexible and agile working, online benefits and financial wellbeing.

Our research findings help us to understand the industry and generate valuable benchmarking, allowing firms to measure the competitiveness of their benefits and identify trends in what is offered to both professional and support staff. The data is also valuable in helping firms to shape and develop their benefit programmes.

Survey of Employee Needs and Perceptions

We provide this service for many of our clients, who find their employees really value the confidentiality of using an outside agency. Their honest responses are then used to change behaviours and develop an engaging benefits programme. To find out how we can support you in getting the views of your staff, get in touch at letstalkbenefits@aon.co.uk.
