Warner’s lockstep compensation model encourages teamwork, and distinguishes us from our competitors. Associate salaries are set based upon seniority, not total hours worked, encouraging client legal projects to be routed to the most knowledgeable person in the firm.
Our team approach to compensation yields better legal representation for our clients and lays the foundation for a fun culture without internal financial competition. We use the lockstep compensation model for partners too.
“The lockstep compensation model is more than just how salary is determined at Warner. It really speaks to the whole firm culture. When choosing to accept a full-time offer from Warner, I considered how the aspect of lockstep compensation institutionally affirms the team-player mentality I felt throughout my interview process. Not only do the other attorneys genuinely want us to grow professionally and be successful, but one person’s salary isn’t diminished by someone else’s success. A big win for one of us is a big win for all of us.”
