Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
As a general matter, yes. That said, most law firms are subject to a shareholder or operating agreement governing the relations of the partners. That document could limit a partner's abilities to be a partner in another firm, but absent an express provision there, one could be a partner in more than one firm. It is highly unusual and uncommon. More common is a lawyer who has a solo practice and is also a partner at another firm.
Let me know if that is fast and clear.
