Presentation: Admitting New Partners

April 20

Admitting a new partner to your law firm is a big decision. Since it is essentially allowing someone else to own a part of your firm, it is important to get it right.  Decision steps include figuring out how much equity to make available and at what price. Existing owners want to understand the impact of sharing more ownership. Other considerations include debt guarantees, assumption of contractual obligations, compensation, and the adjustment of equity interests among existing owners.

The brief 13-minute presentation shown below outlines the key points that law firms should consider when admitting a new law firm partner.  Play it now.
