A legal managing partner is a senior attorney on the management team and one of the primary business partners responsible for running a law firm. They're responsible for the firm's day-to-day operations, business plans, company policies, and profitability. Job duties also include human resources tasks such as hiring and training new attorneys and staff, assisting with reviews and promotions, determining attorney salaries and billing rates. Aside from their managerial responsibilities, they also handle strategic planning to reach business development and public relations goals. A legal managing partner typically works full-time for a law firm but can also work for a corporation or non-profit organization.
