This month sees the release of the The Partner Remuneration Handbook - A Guide to Compensation in Law and Other Professional Firms, by Performance Leader’s Michael Roch & Ray D’Cruz.


In this comprehensive handbook about partner compensation in professional firms, Michael and Ray  provide guidance for senior and managing partners, partnership boards, remuneration committees and all others involved in the partner compensation process on designing effective profit-sharing systems, reaching fair reward decisions efficiently and implementing contribution management processes that motivate partners.
