Frequently Asked Questions

What does profits per partner mean?

Profits per Partner: The long-term quotient. But like most profitability metrics, profits per partner is only a measure of single-year profitability. As a result, it has its limits. To maximize your compensation as a partner, you need to look at PPP as a stream of cash flows to which you are entitled over the course of your career.

How does being a partner in a law firm work?

Most law firms are organized as partnerships, so traditionally, when a lawyer "makes partner," that's the time when he or she transitions from being an employee of the firm (and being paid a salary) to becoming a part-owner of the firm, and sharing in the firm's profits (and liabilities).

What is a partner law firm?

A partner in a law firm, accounting firm, consulting firm, or financial firm is a highly ranked position, traditionally indicating co-ownership of a partnership in which the partners were entitled to a share of the profits as "equity partners.". The title can also be used in corporate entities where equity is held by shareholders.

What is a law firm associate?

Associates are law firm lawyers who have the prospect of becoming partners. Large firms divide associates into junior and senior associates, depending on merit and experience level. The typical law firm lawyer works as an associate for six to nine years before ascending to the partnership ranks ("making partner").
