LATERAL MOVE RESULTS IN DRAMATIC COMPENSATION INCREASE
Two partners in a small firm were voted out of the partnership over a dispute regarding the future direction of the firm. These lawyers contacted Altman Weil to develop a short-term tactical response as well as a strategic plan for the future.
After determining that the two partners were not interested in rebuilding another small firm, but rather were seeking the stability and relative calm of a larger law firm with a clearly defined direction for the future, Altman Weil helped them identify the cultural profile of their ideal law firm. We contacted several targeted firms on their behalf on a confidential basis, filtering out those not interested in the expansion opportunity, and identified one large law firm that seemed to be a perfect cultural match. The partners joined that law firm several months later.
Altman Weil consultants helped these partners join a large, mature and financially secure law firm earning dramatically more compensation.
