Partner Compensation Case Studies

Compensating partners is one of the more complex and potentially divisive issues that law firms face.   And in today’s economic environment good compensation decisions that work to attract and retain key lawyers and reward them appropriately require more care than ever before.

This 90-minute Altman Weil Webinar, Partner Compensation Case Studies sets forth eight compensation scenarios for law firm partners at different points in their careers. Each case study includes a profile of the partner’s economic performance and individual qualitative contributions, as well as external market drivers.  Using these case studies, we walk through key considerations for how the elements should be evaluated together and in context to make the best compensation decisions.

       Compensation scenarios include:

  • New partner
  • Service partner
  • Under-productive partner
  • New lateral hire
  • Rainmaker
  • Partner threatening to leave the firm
  • Managing Partner
  • Partner near retirement

    Who should attend:
  • Managing Partners
  • Compensation Committee members
  • Executive Committee members
  • Any partner with a stake in the compensation process
