Today’s Law360 (sub. req’d) reports on a study that has found that nearly one third of female partners have been bullied–yes, bullied–by male colleagues over origination credits. Hard to imagine that everyone in those firms is pulling their oars in the same direction.
Is there anyone who honestly believes these are productive disagreements? Is there anyway these are anything other than bad for the clients involved?
The fights are silly, and the blame lies with system that make such fights necessary. Perhaps the "corporatization" of law that seems to be occurring will cause these compensation systems to grow up.
