Altman Weil has released the results of its 2006 survey of compensation systems. Billings and originations remain the top two most important factors in determining compensation, particularly at large firms. Also worth noting is that almost 85% of firms with 100 or more lawyers now have 2 tiers of partnership (up from about 65% in 2003). At most firms, good citizenship gets relatively little weight. Strange way to run a business!
