Am Law – About four months ago Sheppard Mullin the 54th

About four months ago, Sheppard Mullin, the 54th company in the latest Am Law 100 ranking, held two rounds of austerity measures, first sending employees on vacation and then shifting all employees’ salaries to the cutting block. Law firm Am Law 100 returns 19 COVID salary cuts. Finally, good news for staff and employees in terms of salary. If you remember, these cuts were 12% for staff, special consultants and lawyers, while for employees with salaries above $90,000 they were reduced by 10% and for employees with salaries between $70,000 and $90,000. – by 5%. After cuts in salaries, vacations and layoffs, the employees and staff of many Biglaw companies were waiting for the day when their lives would return to normal. If your company or organization cuts salaries, closes its doors or downgrades its lawyers or employees, whether direct dismissals, secret separations or voluntary purchases, please let us know. As a result of our good results, the Executive Committee has halved the compensation adjustments related to COVID for members, special advisors, lawyers and employees that began in May. Come to us on August 26th for the best keys and advice to help your legal team navigate through difficult debt. August is almost over, and thanks to the coronavirus crisis in the summer Biglaw law firms played their part in the fight against the economic recession caused by COWID-19. The austerity measures of 5% and 10% absorbed by some of our employees will be reduced to 2½% and 5%, while the austerity measures of 12% applied by our partners and most of our lawyers and special consultants will be reduced to 6%. We believe that people affected by the new salary at the company should be enthusiastic – and we wonder when their salaries will be fully recovered. How do you define success in uncertain times?
