Clydes and 2Birds bolster links between pay and performance
Clyde & Co and Bird & Bird have become the latest firms in the UK top 20 to rejig their associate career paths in a bid to tighten links between pay and individual performance. The moves come as research by Legal Week shows that Clifford Chance (CC) is the only firm in the group that does not base lawyers' salaries on merit. The changes see Clydes move further away from post-qualification experience (PQE) as a measure for pay, with the firm putting in place a clear career development framework for associates. It focuses on performance and clarifying targets for progression.
