Trade lawyers in the area are increasingly interacting with the wider legal team eer is coming to Ontario’s supermarkets. Wine is not quite there yet. But who’s to blame for that? Believe it or not, nothing less than complications arising from international trade agreements are among the primary reasons that former TD Bank CEO Ed Clark, Premier Kathleen Wynne’s privatization czar, is taking a second look at the issue. No wonder, then, that some lawyers are calling this the “golden age of international trade law.” They’re likely right, even if measured by somewhat more compelling standards than those set by the thirsty of this world, numerous though they might be. Both public and private-sector lawyers are comparing trade law’s growth to burgeoning practice areas like Aboriginal and constitutional law, which are admittedly somewhat further along the curve.

“[This decision] warrants industrywide reconsideration of how New York law firms should be organized and whether the term partner is an outdated job title that carries more pitfalls than prestige.”Last November, Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis bankruptcy partner Paul Jasper spoke these words to the New York Law Journal in response to a decision affecting one of his clients.But those words have a powerful importance outside the context of New York, bankruptcy courts or one court’s decision. The question of whether or not lawyers should accept an equity partnership could easily apply throughout the United States. And yet for most lawyers, becoming an equity partner at a large firm is the ultimate dream.Or at least it was.For those lawyers who entered the legal profession 20 to 30 years ago, becoming partner at a major law firm was like entering into marriage. The (admittedly romanticized) notion that held sway back then centered on the view that law firm partners … [Read more...] about Have we reached the end of the partnership model?
