Origination credit is the single most important determinative factor in partner compensation.

In fact, origination credit dwarfs collections, profitability metrics and billable hours in its impact on compensation.

Does your firm award credit ad infinitum to the attorney who first drew a client to the firm or on a matter-by-matter basis? Do your partners work together to grow business? Or does your compensation system incentivize attorneys to bring in clients that might not be the best fit for the firm?
