  • interesting to read that they don't have chargeble hours targets. I assume they are in a minority but it is refreshing to hear.

  • I think there are still a few firms out there that don't have targets. Travers Smith being another one. Clearly a much better way to operate for both lawyers and clients.

  • I can't see that not having official targets makes much difference. There will still be a record of hours and fees billed, and I don't for a moment believe that those figures aren't just as anxiously watched by S&M associates as those in other firms who have formal targets.
