By using a set of pre-established criteria, the firm should only be considering those candidates who have a reasonable chance of long term success. For example, if an attorney has shown no ability to develop new business it is not likely that the attorney will develop any new business after making partner. The skills sets or priorities used in developing a client base are essential to maintaining existing firm clients when faced with competitive challenges.
We are often asked to make evaluations of the readiness of potential new partners. In a fair number of these decisions, no concrete expectations other than billable hours have been communicated. When faced with this situation, we remain focused on the likelihood of future success.
