About this webinar

An Attorney Compensation Plan is critical to your law firm’s success.

A well-designed plan drives leadership, boosts performance, and helps you realize your practice goals. It attracts top legal talent – from new associates to lateral partners – and keeps them happy, so they will want to stay at your firm forever.

And it helps establish a firm culture that is equitable, ethical, and all-in.

Law firms that lack a fair and workable pay structure will not attract and retain blue-chip recruits. This leads to turnover, instability and talent drain – all of which impacts the quality and consistency of client service.

In this webinar, attendees will learn how to create a pay structure that’s right for their practice, whether they’re building a plan from scratch or updating their existing plan.

They will learn about compensation models from Eat-What-You-Kill to Lockstep Systems. They will receive current data on lawyer salaries and benefits, tips for dealing with the emotional aspects of compensation, and valuable checklists, templates and strategies. They will be instructed on their ethical obligations under the Rules of Professional Conduct.

The course will be taught by Brenda Barnes and Camille Stell, authors of RESPECT: Insights in Law Firm Compensation, and two of the country’s foremost experts on Attorney Compensation Plans.
