How to bring in clients right from the stage of being an A0/A1? Is it even possible? Does bringing in clients for your law firm help in early promotions? What is the ground reality of promotions from PA to Counsel/Partner in T1s like KCo/Trilethal/AeZiBi/SCAM? Do you become a partner in 9-11 years regardless of whether you bring in clients or not? Is partnership even dependent on clients? Or is it just the 9-11 years of tenure?
By any chance are you an incoming associate at SCAM?
Can anyone explain why this comment has more votes than the thread itself?
Becoming an Associate Partner or a Partner Designate or a Counsel is by virtue of promotion. You get a stake in the equity if you're a rainmaker.
I've seen PAs jump from T1 to T2 just to recieve partnership. Is it better to have equity in a T2/T3 or just be a salaried partner at a T1 for long?
Equity partners at tier 2 law firms usually take home make more than their counterparts at tier 1 law firms, with equal billing.
How big is the salary diff of a non-eq partner in T1 & T2?
