The legal industry has undergone massive disruption due to economic conditions, increased competition, changing client attitudes, and technological advances. As a result, U.S. law firms are rethinking how lawyers should be evaluated and compensated.
In the past, some have categorized partners who are “finders” – those who find the work; “minders” – those who mind the work; “binders” – those who manage the work and clients; and “grinders” – those who simply churn out legal work. Firms can no longer sustain all of these categories and need lawyers to be accountable for driving revenue.
A well-designed lawyer compensation plan - one that ties compensation to business origination and revenue goals – is a key tool in a law firm's success tool box. Managing partners should have a system for compensating lawyers who support the firm's immediate and long-term revenue objectives.
In this one hour on-demand webinar our presenters explore the interrelationship between marketing, business origination, revenue focused activities and compensation systems in law firms.
The presentation addresses the following:
