What is a "member" of a firm?

Hi.  Some seniors at law firms are listed as "members".  Is a "member" different from a "partner"? Thanks.

I think you have to distinguish between firms that are partnerships (e.g., LLPs) and corporations (e.g., LLCs).  Partnerships have partners, while corporations have members/principals as profit-sharing attorneys.

Sometimes they're called "shareholders" as well.
