What's Wrong with BigLaw

Greenberg Traurig and Stroock are the latest firms to bump associate starting pay to $180,000.

I have to say... the fear that biglaw won't be able to compete on the recruiting playing field unless they match the Cravath minimum... is an example of the lockstep mentality that may ultimately cause the demise of an entire segment of the legal services industry'. Think together sink together.

Tim Baran offers a laundry list of strategies to enhance compensation without bumping salaries. I would suggest these strategies deliver higher value than just dollars, making them a win for the client and a win law firm and the employee.

My favorite - loan forgiveness. What a huge motivator for the associate, and the firm gains an employee out from under the tremendous pressure of school loan repayments.

ALA Gets it Wrong

Just my opinion, but I think the ALA position on alternative business structure of law firms is ..well, just wrong. The ALA says.. "We do not believe that passive investment by individuals who are not lawyers, which would allow for external ownership of law firms, is desirable. "

The capital structure in law firms, along with the ownership structure, and governance, needs a complete re-write if law firms are to implement strategies that drive innovation and growth. Just my opinion.
