What do partners in a law firm argue about
[00:00:00] What do two partners in a law firm argue about most often?
Most of the arguments in law firms, between partners are about origination credit, meaning who gets credit for bringing in a client repairing a client.
And then the other question that they argue about is a lot I pay. So you know, how much they get paid. So those are the two questions they get, they argue about a lot most of the arguments do deal with payment meaning how much of it, money that those partners get at the end of the year.
Sometimes they also argue about hiring meaning they want to bring certain people in and, whether or not the law firm allows them two nations and the money that they get paid is one of the most important thanks. And then the next question is just say, but partners.
A kind of law firm partner is fired. Yes, law firm partners can be fired and they are fired all the time. Different firms, fire partners in different ways. Some law firms [00:01:00] just, there's one or two people that can just fire an attorney if other people decide to fire them. Other firms, need to get a committee together, but law firm partners are fired all the time.
And then they're also asked to leave and they can be they can lose equity if they don't have enough business. And so being a law firm partner is in many cases, much more difficult than being an associate. And you're probably more likely to get fired for non-performance very quickly as a law firm partner than you would be.
Even as an associate many times. So law firm partners are fired all the time. It depends on the firm too. There are some very big firms with very well-known partners where it would be very difficult to fire them, but for a law firm partners involved in anything negative. Whether it's doing something dishonest or any type of harassment or did they do something very stupid? Then law firm partners are certainly fired all the time. Yes.
