Is your non-equity partner pool bigger than desired and is its overall contribution to the firm disappointing?

Finding the right salary and bonus structure to incentivize non-equity partners (whose collections are often consistent year after year) is a major challenge for many law firms.

This comprehensive webinar explores how leading firms are making ‘non-equity’ partnership compensation work, along with lessons learned in terms of firm profitability and value.

Learning Objectives

This power-packed program examines key factors in managing and compensating ‘non-equity’ partners with an eye towards fairness and firm profitability, including:

  • If and when you might consider progressing a non-equity to an equity partner
    • The role of the individual partner business plan, both in non-equity compensation and in promotion to equity
  • How to address and change the tendency to treat non-equities as “high paid associates”
    • Importance of distinguishing between “counsel” and “non-equity” positions
  • Components of a ‘non-equity’ cash compensation package (base, bonus, profit sharing, benefits) and how firms are applying these for these partners
    • Introducing a formula based bonus calculation methodology
  • Key criteria that firms should look at when assessing non-equity partner performance, value and contributions to the firm
    • Importance of the individual partner business plan
    • The role of a lateral partner’s incoming “book of business”
  • Origination issues that arise in a non-equity partner model and how to handle them
  • How firms are using non-equity tiers (junior/senior level non-equity partners)

    • Considering the non-equity partner perspective (internal versus lateral hires)
