Compensation–all partners is based on the total payout to a firm’s entire partnership, regardless of equity status. Because it takes both equity and nonequity partners into account, we consider it to be a more complete assessment than profits per partner, which is based only on distributions to equity partners. Figures are rounded to the nearest $1,000. For more details about CAP, including a discussion of our criteria for distinguishing between equity and nonequity partners, see our methodology.
