Making Better Compensation Decisions

Good law firm compensation programs should be internally fair, externally competitive, incorporate economic and non-economic factors, and align lawyer performance with a firm‘s strategy and culture. In 2013, the best compensation programs will also consider profitability, efficiency, better accountability, and a means to address the rising tide of retiring Boomer Generation lawyers.

This 90-minute Altman Weil Webinar, Making Better Compensation Decisions, focuses on some current challenges in the lawyer compensation process and outline practical approaches that will help your firm reframe those issues to produce better outcomes.

  • Lateral partners: Avoiding buyer’s remorse
  • Non-equity partners: Balancing pay and profitability
  • Retiring partners: Rewarding transitions in a production-oriented pay environment
  • Underproductive partners: Building in accountability
  • Non-partner career paths: Assessing lawyer value
  • Associates: Investing in the future
