You have likely hit a wall in terms of climbing any further up the food chain, there is already a solid management team in place that is not likely to be expanded, so you can carry on doing what you are doing now or move to a new firm where there is blue sky for your future.
What this leading structures firm does well, is set all new employees on a mapped out path as to where they can take their career. If you are interested in building a team around you and running your own projects end to end this is available. If you are interested in the business development side of the business, developing clients and growing a fee base, becoming a work winner this is also an option.
