As Bloomberg Law reports, law firms which remain locked into lockstep compensation are vulnerable to poaching.
An example of this is that Kirkland & Ellis was able to snatch talent from prestigious but lockstep Cravath.
Of course, since lockstep rewards seniority it can encourage loyalty.However, in the current volatile global economy, loyalty might be becoming an anachronism.In return for loyalty, lawyers expect old-line tradeoffs such as job security and title.Forget it.

The answers about your professional life are inside you.You will learn through coaching how to open yourself up to them.And unleash opportunity.Small changes can have big results.
