  1. Salaries for the partners and other employees.
  2. Benefits for the partners and employees.
  3. Office rent and related expenses such as utilities.
  4. Legal and accounting costs.
  5. Travel expenses for board meetings and events such as a CEO day.
  6. Limited partner meetings, including travel and dinners.
  7. Software tools such as a CRM.
  8. Subscriptions to publications and associations.
