About the presentation

Does your practice have an Attorney Compensation Plan?

If not, you may be losing out on top legal talent, limiting your firm’s success, and jeopardizing the quality and consistency of client care.

Join us on September 27 for a special, one-hour CLE, Creating an Attorney Compensation Plan That Will Build Firm Culture and Attract Top Talent, and get started designing a pay structure that’s right for your practice, whether you’re building one from scratch or updating an existing plan.

  • Learn how Compensation Drives Culture and, in turn, Culture Drives Success.
  • Know the difference between Finders, Minders and Grinders.
  • Compare & Contrast different pay models like Eat-What-You-Kill, Share-And-Share-Alike, and Lockstep Methods.
  • See how a Compensation Plan can reduce staff turnover, instability and office drama.
  • Receive the tools to design a plan that will attract and retain top-flight associates and lateral partners.

Plus you’ll come away with valuable templates and online links, and you’ll learn about relevant ethical considerations and Rules of Professional Conduct.

The presenters are two of the nation’s foremost authorities on law practice management, Brenda A. Barnes and Camille Stell, co-authors of RESPECT: Insights in Law Firm Compensation.
