* An in-house-lawyer usually has quite narrow specialization and is unable to give competent and timely advice on a broad variety of legal issues.

** Don’t forget that tax withholdings and trust fund taxes amount to nearly half of the salary.

Let’s proceed to the figures. An average salary of a practising lawyer in Barnaul equates to 25,000 rubles. Add 13 per cent (income tax) to this cost, add insurance contributions to the Pension Fund (22%), Social Insurance Fund (2.9%) and Federal (3.1%) and Regional (2%) Compulsory Medical Insurance Funds. They all add to an extra 30 per cent.

Thus, the cost of labour of an in-house lawyer amounts to 35,750 rubles per month (including 25,000 rubles salary).

Moreover,t, an in-house lawyer will need legal information systems (Consultant Plus or GARANT) for his work; installation and regular update of this soft result in extra 7,000 rubles per month (even if you have a light version).

To sum it up, it will cost you 42,750 rubles per month to have an in-house lawyer, given that you exclude the costs for office equipment and individual workplace from the calculation. You also have to consider resources to organize a workplace, to find a competent employee and to assess him.

Compare it with our lawyers’ fees and the scope ofBezrukov & Partners practice, and make the right choice.
