    A partner in a law firm, accounting firm, consulting firm, or financial firm is a highly ranked position.

The name has remained even though many of these entities are now corporations. Sometimes senior employees of the firm may have the title "partner" to indicate a profit sharing status. Salaried partners are distinguished from equity partners, who own the business.
