Law firms all over surprisingly view real estate as â€œsecond bestâ€ in comparison to the heavy hitters of corporate and private equity work when in the process of trying to increase their profitability. This is a huge missed opportunity for firms and some New York City law firms are proving just that!
A strong real estate practice matters, even though New York is best known for their corporate legal work. Despite modest declines over the past few years, the New York City real estate market is solid and is even improving. Non-New York firms are starting to take notice of the incline in real estate and have even hopped on the train to add significant groups to their real estate practice in New York in the last 18 months.

The path to making partner is not for the faint of heart. For lawyers, becoming partner is end-game and what most fail to realize while on this track is that becoming partner is a â€œslow and steadyâ€ concept. Let me explain, in order for associates to become partner they must put in their dues by pleasing their partners and clients and fulfilling billable hours.
