The annual Financial Benchmarking Survey, conducted by the Law Society's law management section and published in late April, found that South East firms with 30 partners or fewer have a median profit per equity partner (PEP) of £117,053 - more than £10,000 short of the average PEP of £129,199 in the other regions examined.
