What percentage of counsel have been made partner in recent years? What about in your practice group? If you dont make partner can you stay or is it up or out? What's the criteria to make partner? Do you need to meet the criteria in a certain number of years? Is partnership one-tier or two-tier? Are there any PT partners or counsel? If so, how many? How many in your practice group? Do counsels receive raises or bonuses? How often? What is the criteria? Do counsel serve on firm committees or only partners?

Hard to say without knowing more about the position and how you’ll be compensated. The title “Of Counsel” can be used for vastly different things. I believe it was first given to semi-retired partners, but today, it often refers to a lawyer who’s essentially a senior associate, or one who works under an independent contractor arrangement.
