Focus: Partner Pay – How do you like your stake? By The Lawyer 14 November 2011 00:00 17 December 2015 14:11 Owner or underling? The intricacies and politics of partnership status are about to escalate Anonymous 14 November 2011 at 14:53 Well done on that headline… Reply Link Arthur Andersen 14 November 2011 at 20:06 The difference between the PEP and EPP figures for Dickson Minto is surprisingly small – are those figures definitely correct? Would expect the PEP to be high, but the EPP to be much lower. Reply Link Ashley Balls 14 November 2011 at 21:24 Why the obsession with firm size? PEP and EPP rarely show the indicator the clients need to know – management skill. One (of many) metrics capable of doing this is Profit Per Lawyer – PPL. To calculate PPL merely divide the total profit available for distribution by the unmber of FTE practising certificates. PPL removes the gerrymandering associated with other metrics. Re-engineering the top 200 this way will show a very different picture and identify some intersting trends.

Reply Link Anonymous 15 November 2011 at 14:04 Good title. In terms of the contents, I bet there are many partners who did better during the recession being on a salary. Reply Link TheLawMap Associate 16 November 2011 at 13:55 I too am surprised like previous commenter Arthur Andersen about Dickson Monto figures. On a different note, the financial upheavals that the legal sector is experiencing at present might make it more risky for the equity holders, especially those who are freshly appointed. Excellent article as ever. TheLawMap Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
