Depends on the firm. I’m work at a firm that heavily advertises and we get enough cases from that. They actually need to approve associate referrals because they don’t really want us bringing run of the mill soft tissue (or worse, small damages case with so so liability) because the firm gets enough of those on their own without having to pay higher originating commissions. If they approve the case they pay 35%. But my point is that some firms need those referrals more than others.

I get 1/3. But if they’re paying you a higher than average base, you may get some pushback so I’d also factor that in.

Depends on what year you are.

It depends on the recovery. If one of my associates brought in a case with fees over 100k and substantially worked on the case, I would go 50/50. I stair-stepped it down to 10% for minor soft tissue cases. Otherwise, that associate knows they could refer it out and get 50% without much work on it at all. (Although a written fee split disclosure and written professional responsibility requirements may apply).

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

Controversial take: someone suggested to me that some of the Big 4 are just using Covid as an excuse to fire people they wanted to before but did not want to go through the hassle or hurt reputation. So as long as Covid continues, they will keep firing people and not raising salaries even if they can afford to. What do you think?

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible?

Do we think the tech issues played into that significantly or just my interview not stacking up to other candidates?
