The Underlying Causes of Withdrawal and Expulsion of Partners from Law Firms, 55 Washington & Lee L. Rev. 1073 (1998)
The law governing the withdrawal and expulsion of partners from law
firms is undergoing rapid change as demonstrated in the papers presented in
this symposium. Underthe older, traditional conception oflawyeraffiliation,
withdrawal or expulsion was unthinkable: Once a lawyer became a partner
it was assumed that he - in the old days it was almost always' "he" - stayed
with the firm until death or retirement. The firm cleaved to the lawyer over
the same course, or so we were led to believe.
