A recent report by The National Law Journal on the progress of women partners at the nation's largest law firms highlights the critical importance of being a business generator, says Kathleen Wu, a partner in the Dallas office of Andrews Kurth. "The survey tracked the number of equity partners, and that's a direct reflection of who's bringing in business," says Wu, a frequent columnist on issues affecting women in the legal profession. "There are a lot of factors impeding women's progress in the law, and we need to address those. But we absolutely must make business generation skills a critical part of the mix. I advise young lawyers, regardless of gender, to keep an eye out for 'best practices.' Who's bringing in business and how are they doing it? Equity partners are business owners, so lawyers who want to make partner need to have a business owner mindset."
