Why do lawyers operate in threes?
It seems like every law firm has three names
- Nuff SedLv 710 months ago
False premise. I have worked at several law firms that do not have three names. Many firms name one or two of the partners; some name more than three.

They DON'T operate in 3s. If there are 3 PARTNERS in the name of the firm, there are probably e DOZEN attorneys working for the firm. There may even be more than 3 partners that joined after the name was chosen.

Because all three lawyers own the firm.

They don't "operate" in threes. Many firms have more than three lawyers. But they put just three in the name, because the name would be too long with more names.

That is usually only when the law firms are larger, often a result of a merger between two or three smaller firms. You see two name or single name firms in smaller ones. But why 3 and not 13? Because it rolls off the tongue like saying someone's full name.

Lawyers can never agree --so the third is there to supply the deciding vote .

That forms a Triad also called a triangle, the strongest structure known to Man. The diamond is a tetrahedron which is slap full of triangles.
