The article presents some pieces of information related to law firms. Law firm executive Clifford Chance's arduous lockstep consultation looks like dragging on for a while yet, with dreams of having a partner vote by the summer fading fast. The remuneration review group, led by real estate head Cliff McAuley, is still ironing out proposals with senior management more than three months after the latest lockstep debate kicked off. It is understood the group has encountered a worrying degree of intransigence on the subject, ensuring that progress has been slow. It seems that partners are needing more time to get used to the idea of Iockstep reform, or, as one put it, "more soak time".
