RESPECT – An Insight to Attorney Compensation Plans by Brenda Barnes and Camille Stell

Many books about partner compensation are written from a BigLaw perspective. Camille Stell and Brenda Barnes recognize that most lawyers work in smaller and mid-size firms where core values and personal relationships mean so much.

They have written a clear, straightforward guide to partner compensation for those law firms in which culture really matters, collegiality and client service are genuine priorities, and respect among professionals is meant to be strengthened every day. Partner compensation in smaller and midsize firms is about more than just money.

This guide to attorney compensation includes:

  • Compensation formulas
  • Origination credit and equity
  • The role of the Managing Partner, along with a job description
  • Compensation carve-outs such as paying non-equity partners
  • Compensation system biases
  • Trends in compensation
