Australian law firms are having a wider choice of home grown talent thanks to Brexit.

The researchers also pointed out that it was also likely that fewer Australian lawyers would make the move to the UK or Europe in the medium term, as Brexit negotiations create uncertainty about the legal landscape in the coming years.

Increase in salaries
