Partners, also called shareholders, are attorneys who are joint owners and operators of the firm. We embrace a two-tiered partnership structure: equity and non-equity. Equity partners have an ownership stake in the firm and they share in its profits. Non-equity partners are paid a fixed annual salary. Non-equity partners are often, although not always, promoted to full equity status in four to six years. They’re required to make a capital contribution to the firm become equity partners.
Associates are younger attorneys who have the potential to become partners. We divide associates into junior and senior associates, depending on merit and experience level. The typical lawyer works as an associate for nine to eleven years before ascending to partnership ranks or “making partner.” When—and if—an associate makes partner generally depends on a combination of factors, including the associate’s legal acumen, his/her client base, and how well he/she fits into the firm’s culture.
Consultants who are “of counsel” aren’t technically employees of the firm. They usually work on an independent contractor basis. Lawyers who serve in this role are usually very experienced, senior lawyers who have their own books of business. They have strong reputations in the legal community. Some of-counsel attorneys are semi-retired lawyers who were formerly partners of the firm. Others are hired to augment the firm’s client base or knowledge base
