Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz is a prominent law firm located in New York City. Wachtell is considered to be one of the most prestigious law firms in the United States. New York University Law School alumni Herbert Wachtell, Martin Lipton, Leonard Rosen, and George Katz founded the firm in 1965. It is consistently among the most profitable large law firms in the world on a per-partner basis according to the American Lawyer's annual AmLaw 100 Survey. The firm also ranks at the top of other various surveys, including the Vault.com Associates Survey and was ranked as the #1 Most Prestigious Law Firm to Work For by the AveryIndex [1]. Wachtell is generally considered one of the most difficult law firms at which to get a job: summer classes at Wachtell number in the low dozens and are almost exclusively composed of the strongest applicants from top law schools. Its associates are generally paid substantially more than associates at any other firm in the country. The firm is smaller, and has a lower associate to partner ratio, than many of its peer firms, such as Sullivan & Cromwell, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.

associates 普通律师, 有别于paralegal (律师助理)和 partner (合伙人)

从法学院毕业后进入律师事务所就是一个associate,可以称为lawyer了,能够代表客户出庭。但这时他是一个Articling lawyer 或 apprentice lawyer,大概2,3年的实习期,期间他要通过一个Bar exam才能拿到license,这样以后才能自己开业(work on his own).

取得律师执照后在事务所里仍然是一个associate(即work for the law firm), 直到老板们(partners)认为你够聪明,总能打赢官司,同时又特别喜欢你,那么就让你升职成为partner,从此结束了打工拿工资的日子。

如果一个有四、五年资历的律师还是一个associate,而老板虽让你干这干那却无意拉你入伙,升你做partner,明摆着就是要你走人,聪明的你就该另谋他就。有的去为政府做律师(检察官),有的自己开店营业。通常到了六、七年,未能变为合伙人的律师都没有赖着不走的。

文中说associates/partners比率小,可能说明精英相对多些

类似情况在会计事务所,投行也存在

现在的投行大多都已上市来筹措永久资本。所以合伙人制度在大投行里面已经不多见。GS,MS
