A managing attorney or partner is a senior attorney and one of the primary professionals in charge of running a law firm. They are responsible for the firm’s operations, profitability, and ultimately, help in the success of its legal services. 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, and also handling terminations. Additionally, the managing attorney works to grow the firm through client appreciation events, recruiting events, and educational seminars. Aside from their managerial responsibilities, they also handle their own active legal caseload. A managing attorney typically works full-time for a law firm but can also work for a corporation or non-profit organization.
