Walt Burton was recently interviewed by the Nashville Post regarding how the fastest growing law firm in the State of Tennessee is different from other law firms and what he envisions for the law firm in 2015. Burton recites that “the practice of law has avoided disruption for centuries. We think those days are rapidly coming to an end. It’s time to rethink the business model and shift to a more transparent compensation system. Law firm compensation and leadership is typically based on seniority and politics. We think compensation should be based on productivity. This model is not for everyone, but it attracts the high performers, which is good for the firm.” We look forward to an exciting 2015!
