Partners support firm moves to hold back profit distributions to shore up finances
The majority of partners see moves by firms to hold back profit payouts as sensible financial management, as new Legal Week research highlights the widespread use of such measures across the profession. The latest Big Question survey found that 45% of respondents have seen regular profit distributions delayed or withheld at their firm over the past 12 months, including 10% whose firms have held back ‘all or several' payments in that timeframe. The remaining 55% said all distributions at their firms had been paid out in full and on time.
