Bar results not bad results!!!! In all seriousness, my firm does this if you’re so close to getting results no point in investing in someone who may need to retake the bar in a few months.

Ahh I’ve heard from a few others about being promoted to an associate position fairly quickly after getting results but this is helpful to know. Thank you for this!

Partners or whomever can help me understand about billing and hours. To keep things simple, let’s say you only have one staff to work 1,700 billable hours a year on a $60k salary and you have only one job that and the rate charged to the client is $300/hour and an projected hours budget of 1,700 hours. So ideally you would have revenue of $510k. If the staff takes less time partners make less money and if they take more time partners make more money while the staff keeps the same salary?
