ABSTRACT
This article reports that Simmons & Simmons' new management team is planning radical new contracts aimed at offering lawyers an alternative career route to partnership. Senior partner and employment expert Janet Gaymer wants to tear up the traditional contract for lawyers and turn it on its head. Simmons plans to undertake trials in certain practice areas. Transactional practices, in which lawyers could sell their services on a project-by-project basis, will not necessarily be excluded. Gaymer was due to address Simmons' partnership on the issue at the annual meeting last weekend with the aim of implementing her revolutionary ideas by 2007.
