A Virtual Think Tank for Law Firm Leadership
Save the Date for January 2023

Join Us for Law Firm Compensation Strategy: A Virtual Think Tank for Law Firm Leadership

Aligning Compensation with Strategic Priorities and Financial Goals


ARK Group’s Law Firm Compensation Strategy is a virtual think tank for law firm leadership, compensation committees, and human resources professionals to come together and discuss how compensation can be leveraged as a forcing function to drive positive change and adaptations in partner behavior, aligning incentives with strategic priorities, client needs, and financial goals. Expect to hear key themes including: adapting strategies to meet the evolving landscape, rethinking compensation as a driver of change, and rewarding performance and profitability.

We heard your feedback! At the 2022 think tank, we condensed the think tank down to one day including a morning of thought-provoking content, followed by the afternoon workshop led by think tank facilitator Timothy Corcoran. Attendees collectively worked through case studies and exercises to identify gaps between current anonymous compensation plans and modern practices, garnering new ideas and perspectives to implement back at their respective firms. This is an ideal opportunity for candid discussion among your peers in an open mic format that encourages interaction, collaboration, and constructive debate. 

Stay tuned for updates on our 2023 event!
