The article reports that partnership law experts are warning that the issue of part-time work for partners is an "unexploded bomb" that could have a serious effect on law firms in the future. "The Lawyer" reported that the company Lovells was voting on the remuneration of its part-time partners with the aim of abolishing a scheme whereby part-timers progress more slowly up the equity and are paid less than pro rata. Banister Roderick I'Anson Banks, of specialist partnership set 48 Bedford Row said that part-time work in law firms has changed significantly in recent years. Where part-time work was traditionally reserved for senior partners at the end of their careers, with no dent to earnings, it is now mostly the preserve of female partners.
