Remuneration

As a senior lawyer you deserve to be financially and emotionally remunerated for your extensive expertise and plentiful business contacts. You have worked hard to get where you are and rightly expect the reality to live up to the dream. But if you are not seeing a reward that justly matches your achievements, then now is the right time to take control of your destiny and advantage of our Just Rewards programme.

Keystone’s lawyers receive performance-based remuneration which typically ranges from £75,000 to £750,000. Lawyers are paid according to a simple and transparent performance based remuneration structure, which we call Just Rewards.  The percentages detailed below apply to every lawyer regardless of experience, terms of service or fee generation.

Keystone lawyers are rewarded by way of a sophisticated performance based remuneration structure which pays them between 60% and 75% of fees depending on the origination of the client. Additional, direct and long-lasting financial recognition is given to those who refer work to Keystone colleagues.

The Just Rewards programme is about fairness and equality. It is also about taking out what you put in, in equal measure. And above all it's about working as a team, but on your own terms. Just Rewards is for solicitors who yearn for a real sense of freedom and autonomy, but who fundamentally need the infrastructure, support and camaraderie of a conventional law firm. It's for lawyers who know how to stand on their own two feet, but realise the strength that lies in numbers.

Just Rewards is for solicitors who have a genuine and realistic expectation of a client following, even if that following may take a while to develop. Lawyers who 'own' clients receive an even higher percentage of fees on work undertaken for those clients and a generous percentage of the fees of colleagues who help service those clients – an arrangement that continues for the 'life' of the client. And crucially, Just Rewards gives 'client owners' complete control of their valuable assets, much more so than in any conventional law firm.
