What do the requirements for equity partner look like at your firm? How is origination handled (ie once you bring in a client every new matter is your origination whether they called you or someone else at the firm, whether you do the work, and even whether for insurance clients the adjuster assigning to a colleague doesn’t know who you are)? My firm has one female equity partner- who doesn’t have a family. How can I work to change the mold for others to get there?

I will add - midsize regional firm. Average 100 attorneys.

Big law (so maybe not relevant): If you are the first you get to have a say before a new matter is opened on that client unless the origination of your colleague had nothing to do with you then it is theirs. This (together with inheritances) is why we often have more than one partner to a client.

Agreed. Trying to work to change it.
