Don’t pick a firm. Choose a future.
Every newly hired associate is considered to be eligible for partnership. The partners recognize their responsibility to prepare each associate to stand for admission to the partnership. Such election is based upon the associate’s demonstrated competence, ability to work without direct supervision, to cooperate with colleagues, to secure the confidence of clients, and to advance the practice and reputation of the firm.
The firm’s compensation program for partners is based not on their seniority but rather on their respective capacities to secure the satisfaction of the firm’s clientele, and to increase demand for its professional services, in performing challenging assignments.
