Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to become a partner at a law firm?

Cost of Making Partner. Becoming a partner may not come cheap. Law firms that offer a partnership with an equity stake will often ask for a “buy-in.” That amount varies for each firm, however, some of the top firm’s may require hundreds of thousands of dollars as a capital investment.

What makes a good partner in a law firm?

Enhancing a firm by bringing in all of a lawyer's clients is a method for becoming a law firm partner. The equity partner becomes a part owner in the business, and gets to share in the profits. Law firms may also make the distinction between senior and junior partners.

Whats the best way to price a law firm?

Subscription law firm pricing is when you provide clients with legal services on an as-needed basis for a set monthly subscription fee. This leads to more predictable income for your firm, and smoother working relationships. Such a pricing model may make sense for clients who need ongoing legal help, such as small businesses.

Can a partner make less money than an associate?
