All non-equity partners will see a base compensation reduction of 8%, excepting those that are on track that meet the firm’s 1800-hour billable hour standard.

Senior staff will have a base compensation reduction of 8%. All other non-legal staff will be unaffected.

The profiles for equity partners were set at 5% below last year’s earnings at the beginning of the year. The final compensation decisions for equity partners will be based on 2009 individual and firm performance.
