In law firms, partners are primarily those senior lawyers who are responsible for generating the firm’s revenue. The standards for equity partnership vary from firm to firm.

This position is often given to lawyers on track to become equity partners so that they can more easily generate business; it is typically a “probationary” status for associates (or former equity partners, who do not generate enough revenue to maintain equity partner status).
