HANOVER, Maryland – April 16, 2012 - Major, Lindsey & Africa (MLA), the world’s leading legal search firm, announced today the launch of the 2012 MLA Partner Compensation Survey. The Survey is being sent to more than 40,000 law firm partners across the United States. It is a follow up to the ground-breaking 2010 survey which represented the most comprehensive effort undertaken to date to identify ranges of partner compensation and the criteria law firms use to determine partner compensation. The Survey, which is completely anonymous and confidential, was developed by Jeffrey Lowe, Managing Partner of MLA’s Washington, D.C. office. ALM Legal Intelligence, an independent research company, is conducting the survey on behalf of MLA.
“We are excited to be launching the 2012 Survey,” says Lowe. "Prior to the 2010 Survey, partner level compensation and other practice metrics, such as billable hours and originations, had never been captured on this scale before. The response to the survey by partners across the nation was tremendous, and we look forward to sharing the results of the 2012 Survey with the entire legal community."
