Partner Compensation (2014)

Partner Compensation (2014)


1.5 TOTAL CREDITS in Professional Practice

Sponsored by the Law Practice Management Committee and the Committee on Continuing Legal Education of the New York State Bar Association

The overall goal of a partner compensation system is – or should be – to align compensation with the value of the contribution of each partner to the law firm. The contribution or value of each partner varies in kind and amount, i.e., business origination, producers of legal work, consequential non-revenue producing activities or a combination.

The challenge to lawyer management is to determine the relative value of each of these contributions in order to ensure that the system works by compensating partners fairly and motivating them to perform these activities.

Chaired by a nationally recognized law firm management consultant and featuring managing partners of law firms as panelists, this program provides a comprehensive overview of partner compensation systems and examples of compensation systems.
