Emilie R. Ninan


When you’re first starting out, the path to becoming a law firm partner can seem like a mystery. Adding to this mystery is that the partnership landscape has changed in recent years. Instead of the traditional "up or out" model that rewarded most associates for their longevity and dedication, changes in the marketplace and increased competition have required firms to modify their pathway to partnership. Today, the path to partnership often takes longer than the old model, usually includes a lateral move, and requires associates to demonstrate that they can be rainmakers.

In this interview, Ms. Ninan will explore:

  • Changes in the partnership landscape
  • Tips and advice for associates who want to become partner in today's law firm environment
  • Essential skills an associate must develop to become a productive, rainmaking partner
