Sometimes large changes break across the landscape like summer afternoon thunderstorms, seemingly coming from nowhere and definitely getting everyone’s attention: And sometimes they steadily and stealthily accumulate over time, perhaps without anyone ever intending to transit from where we were to where, when we look around, we find ourselves today.

Today we’re talking about Type 2.

Hazard a guess for me: How has the number of equity partners in the NLJ 250 firms changed over the last 10 years (2002—2012, the most recent figures available)? Up, down, sideways?

And, how has the number of non-equity partners in the NLJ 250 changed over the same period?

As they say on TV, more after the break.
