COVIDEconomics: Evaluating a Law Firm’s Pandemic Performance


Whether assessing how your own firm is performing or considering a move to a new firm, you need a grounding in basic law firm economics and the stresses that COVID has placed on them.

Keith Wetmore and Richard Hsu, managing directors in the Partner Practice Group, used their combined six decades of experience in BigLaw to offer a tutorial on how to assess and predict 2020 law firm performance.

Keith Wetmore is the former chair of MoFo and Richard Hsu is a former partner at Shearman & Sterling and host of a two-time award-winning podcast, Hsu Untied.

During this 30-minute webinar, Keith and Richard discussed:

  • Why some firms are more profitable than others?
  • How to use AmLaw PPP to evaluate a firm?
  • How to use profit margin to evaluate a firm?
  • What questions should I be asking about a firm's financial performance if I am navigating the lateral market?
  • Austerity measures adopted by some law firms?
  • How stay-at-home orders have affected firms' performance
