New DLA finance head to push collaboration pay incentives

DLA Piper’s finance partners are being encouraged to participate in cross-office and cross-practice collaboration within a new framework called Project Connect, led by Martin Bartlam, who takes over as the firm’s international finance head on 1 May.

Collaboration, which will be measured through statistics as well as the behaviours of individual partners, will be part of the firm’s existing remuneration structure, not isolated in the sense of a bonus pot. Partners outside the finance and projects practice are not part of the programme.
