Currently my salary as a second year associate at an ID firm is 92k with bonus structure. However, I originated almost 250k in legal fees received this year. Mostly from corporate and individual clients I brought to the firm. Is this something most second associates are expected to do or should I leverage this into a sizable raise with the partners?

relatively unheard of for 2nd year ID associates, who largely are scrambling to keep 65 active files afloat without malpractice and playing wack a mole with adjusters threatening to reassign cases…you should negotiate a percentage of those those fees in comp/bonus and also have the equivalent amount of the fees in hours applied towards your billable requirement. They should give you a raise just to make you stay

Check your offer letter right now about fees. Some will say you take 8-10% of fees, and you should get that on top of your bonus.

But yes, definitely renegotiate your salary. Otherwise, you can literally go solo and keep the 250 next year!

Definitely a monster year for your class. There are junior partners who would be jealous of that stat.

As someone who is not from the UK but lives here, seems like the focus of the COVID conversations boils down to ‘protecting the NHS.’ Shouldn’t the NHS be protecting us though?

I feel that we need to be given a risk rating based on certain factors and those in lower risk categories should be allowed to go about their lives and run the economy as usual. Tier 5 sounds awful - I oppose it. Thoughts?
