Devising a fair and rewarding equity structure for your law firm has always been a much-debated issue. Affecting the way in which firms can attract, motivate and retain partners to achieve maximum competitive advantage, it can also transform your firm’s apparent financial performance when benchmarking against systems such as PEP.

This interactive one-day masterclass will examine how law firms may need to adapt in response to both financial and regulatory changes, tackle the market-facing impacts of equity structure and realise the true impact of the Legal Services Act, as law firms become open to outside investment.

During the course of the day, delegates will hear how to:

Adapt your partnership structure in a challenging economic environment
Stimulate innovation and motivation
Attract new partners
Do not miss this unique opportunity to get up-to-speed with the critical subject of law firm equity structures!
