Any thoughts on what a “standard” origination credit system is for associates at a midsized litigation boutique in Texas? The system is solidified for partners but more hazy for associates. Hoping to get some guidance.

10% is standard, but it was always part of my end year bonus and never paid separately. The end result for me was that 10% was my bonus


I could be wrong but I think 3% is pretty standard

Need to know more about the matter. Who working on it and exactly how did it come in? What level are you? How are your numbers this year? What’s your comp level? Most firms don’t pay direct percentages. Instead your originations are part of your overall contribution to the firm, which ultimately drive your comp. So if you make $250,000, only billed 1,000 hours this year at $400/hour, and brought in a $200,000 matter, you would not typically get any additional comp for the origination because your personal sollectiona didn’t come close to covering your own employment-related costs.

My firm it’s 5% paid out at the end of the year. I’ve heard of other firms doing 10%, but only if the engagement brings in a certain amount of business (e.g., 10% if it’s over 75k worth of business).
