>>>He disputes the validity of profits-per-partner . . . Cutler would rather measure success by the amount of revenue generated per attorney, which for Dorsey was down less than 1 percent in 2012<<<< Attention all other law firms in the country: Dorsey respectfully requests changing the performance measurement standard to a metric more to its liking. But reserves the right to change back at a later date . . .

I don't know anything about law firms, but I hope they have a profitable year so they can buy some new paintings.

One of the firm's lawyers happens to be a neighbor of mine over here in the west metro and he's talked before how things have really slumped for D&W, in large part due to the recent management shuffling at the firm. To reflect the instability and other issues, there's an unofficial name for the firm that people in the office use....Dorky & Whiny.
