Any Other Business - 02/07

Starting yesterday, law firm Travers Smith will be compensating overworked solicitors living a deskbound lifestyle by paying them a special bonus linked to the amount of anti-social hours they have billed. Lowly trainees are not eligible, but qualified lawyers who experience “excessive disruption” to their personal lives might get the extra payout. Managing partner Andrew Lilley said the firm’s lawyers “might be more miserable than we would want them to be.” That would be the treat them not too mean, keep them keen management style then.
