This article focuses on plans of Janet Gaymer, senior partner of Simmons Co., to expand the firm's business. Gaymer wants her firm to embrace flexible working for men and women from the moment they arrive at the firm, up to and including partnership. This means revolutionising the pyramid structure of partnership and solving the perennially difficult problem of giving senior lawyers status even if they aren't in the equity elite. It also means tackling the general assumption that flexible working is associated with low profitability, which is particularly pertinent in Simmons' case.
