How do I qualify for a lump-sum performance award?

LPs at the top of the salary range will receive lump-sum performance awards based on their assessed performance. This part of the performance pay plan applies only to lawyers at the LP1, LP2 and LP3 levels when they are already at the maximum of the pay range.  Lawyers who receive a rating of “Unsatisfactory” are not eligible to receive a performance lump-sum award. ​
