Time...the thing we waste and can't get more of! Yet we youngsters (and I count myself as one of those!) are much less aware of our mortality. With age comes wisdom, usually. So, it's as we wander through the inevitable stages of life that our thoughts turn to what we will do when we retire. At Carbon we have been mindful of the dynamic in the professional services world of which we are a part. The tendency for progression through a practice that ends with an "up and out" result. Our approach to that question has been to create freedom and flexibility for retirement planning.
But that's not all. It seems obvious to us that a career path needs a plan and a map too. An organisation that can flex and adapt through our own personal lifecycles, now that would be a thing! Make your own map for your own career path...
So we built one. Yup, we did! A platform that can flex and adapt around its Partners, delivering value to them, removing risk, freeing them to flourish on their own terms. Not just in retirement, as important as it is, but in life along the way. A chance to be your very own personal cartographer.
Carbon’s Partner Practice Value structure gives partners exiting traditional LLPs - who may still have a decade or more of working life - the freedom within its framework to choose a path before retirement that best suits them. Whilst Carbon’s structure is beneficial to all ages and stages of an ambitious lawyer’s career, the firm believes it has particular benefits for senior lawyers exiting LLPs who still have ambitions to further and develop their careers on their own terms.
