Our Guiding Principles for Compensation
At Minc Law, we strive to correct the shortcomings inherent in traditional law firm compensation models by compensating all team members appropriately and justly. The following are our guiding principles as it relates to team member compensation:
We offer competitive salaries at or above what similar-sized law firms or other businesses pay for similar roles in the region.
Ensure Equity & Reward Performance
Teammates who have the same job titles, similar skills, and comparable levels of experience, are paid similar base salaries within a defined pay range. As teammates become more experienced, achieve greater skills, or produce superior results they will earn higher base salaries.
Incentives For Team Success
Our success as an organization depends on the hard work, contributions, and results of all team members. All teammates impact our ability to succeed. Therefore, incentive pay is based on team results. If the firm is producing profits and successfully operating, all teammates have the opportunity to be rewarded proportionally.
How We Structure Employee Compensation
Each full-time team member at Minc Law receives a base salary based on their position, skill level, and experience. On top of paying base salary, we also offer a profit-sharing plan that enables team members to receive incentive payments of up to 15% of their base annual salary when the firm achieves certain profitability targets each year.
Base Salary Levels
All positions within our firm have base salary levels based on the following factors:
- Position and position level–including the scope of work and performance expectations for the role detailed in the table below;
- Experience level and skill set necessary to perform the expectations of the role; and
- External market data–or how similar roles are paid in our industry and geographic region.
Salary discussions are scheduled with each team member annually to discuss salary increases, typically within a range of 2% to 10%, based on: (1) the teammate’s continued achievement of established goals, (2) the firm’s overall financial performance, (3) market factors, and (4) whether the teammate has been promoted to a role of increased responsibility or scope.
Incentive Plan Opportunity
Minc Law is committed to rewarding employees for the overall success and profitability of the firm. As mentioned above, our profit-sharing plan enables team members to receive up to 15% of their base annual salary in incentive pay.
For incentives to be paid, the firm must achieve certain minimum levels of profitability. The annual benchmarks and other eligibility requirements are outlined and shared with all employees in an Incentive Plan Overview document at the beginning of each year.
