To become a partner is the goal of any lawyer. At our law firm this is possible.
The future of our firm is directly linked to the rising career of our lawyers. Therefore we have established a clear professional career which is generally composed of the following stages:
- Junior – From scratch up to completion of the third year.
- Mid-Level – From the fourth year up to completion of the sixth.
- Senior – From the seventh year and lasting for about three/four years.
- Access to partnership.
Each year and stage implies a certain “level” of ability/experience. The natural development of each cycle is year by year, although obviously when a lawyer is placed in a certain cycle/year due to his/her background and the like, he/she may “jump” later a year if he/she shows a greater work capability/development.
To these effects, “development” is measured by means of technical abilities, integration and increasing capacity to personally manage matters, clients and teams with more independence. We evaluate the performance of our lawyers on an annual basis, taking into account the development expected for the next year.
When it comes to access to partnership, we value not only technical abilities, integration/dedication (which we assume by that time have been already fully acquired and demonstrated) but additional values, such as commercial capacity, professional leadership and personal affinity with the rest of the partners.
