  • What's the problem here? Of course plateau partners should keep their game up and its worth reminding them, especially if lower level partners are constantly reminded about their profitability and requirements to progress up the ladder. Where is the business sense in distributing maximum level of profits to someone who is not bringing in the money (or running the firm)?

  • there is clearly pressure at all levels here and the number of announced exits and upcoming exits illustrate this well - this was once a firm dominant in many of the upper mid\large transactions - now one rarely hears their name mentioned .... and as for any strategy on expansion - I see none
