They really should have matched bonuses. Sheppard (a) has a PPP of $1.7M -- similar to that of other California firms like OMM ($2.0M), Orrick ($1.9M), MoFo ($1.7M), and Fenwick ($1.5M); (b) is less levered than all those firms so bonuses should have made less of an impact on partners' wallets; and (c) has been seeing stronger growth than all of those firms. Yet all of those firms matched bonuses.

Anon that posted the raise news originally. No question they should have.

ATL is reporting that many tipsters seem pretty happy with the move, notwithstanding the lack of bonus. You don't seem too mad either. Why? Is your quality of life compared to your friends pretty good?

I'm the anon that confirmed that anon. If you know how the firm runs, you'll know that it's run very conservatively with regard to finances (which has its own benefits in the long run). For that reason, I'm appreciative that any raise was given at all.

I'll be right at 2000 hours this year, so I'm not dying but not exactly light either. I don't know, I'm disappointed but not furious. We don't have an up an out model, I'm in a nice location, I like the partners. I think we still are a notch down from Wilson, Cooley, and MoFo, so whatever. We get paid the same salary and get a less in bonus. I'll survive.

I'm at Katten. We did a TTT raise today:

The Firm’s Executive Committee has decided to raise salaries for our US associates effective July 1, 2018. In all offices other than Charlotte, the scale will be as follows:

Class Salary
2017 $190,000
2016 $200,000
2015 $220,000
2014 $255,000
2013 $280,000
2012 $305,000
2011+ $325,000

Charlotte associates will receive corresponding increases. To receive the new base salaries, associates must be providing client service up to our standards of quality and efficiency and be on an annualized pace to meet our minimum hours requirements. For those associates who are not currently on pace to meet the hours requirements, but complete the year on or over pace, we will pay a bonus to ensure that all associates on or over pace by the end of the year have the benefit of the higher salary.

Consistent with our previous approach at year-end, the Firm intends to continue to reward our highest performing associates who deliver greater value to our clients and drive client relationships through the quality and efficiency of their work with total compensation equal to, and in many cases in excess of, the total compensation offered by other law firms (taking into account bonuses paid by some of our competitors during the course of the year).

Our Firm has grown and found great success by aligning the interests of our clients with those of our legal talent – attracting, retaining and supporting high quality, productive lawyers who provide the best client service and efficiently deliver solutions to clients’ business problems. We believe our approach outlined above will further assure that alignment.

We thank you for your hard work and dedication to our clients and the Firm.

Some fun facts, maybe useful to law students during OCI:

$1.4 million PPP seems to be around the sweet spot for where it becomes likely that you'll at least see a raise when the market moves. 90 percent of firms in the AmLaw 200 with over $1.36 million PPP have matched salary raises. 85 percent of AmLaw 200 firms at or below that mark have not announced salary matches or have announced they will not match. Zero firms below $1.28 million PPP have announced salary raises and bonuses.

Nearly all firms (approx. 90 percent) above $2.0 million PPP have announced matches to both bonuses and raises. Boies not announcing yet and Cooley denying summer bonuses are the two most prominent exceptions in that group.

Roughly $1.4 million to $2 million PPP seems to be where it gets interesting. Around 75 percent of firms in that range have matched salaries but around half of those firms have refused to supplement those raises with bonuses.

$1.4 million PPP seems to be around the sweet spot for where it becomes likely that you'll at least see a raise when the market moves. 90 percent of firms in the AmLaw 200 with over $1.36 million PPP have matched salary raises. 85 percent of AmLaw 200 firms at or below that mark have not announced salary matches or have announced they will not match. Zero firms below $1.28 million PPP have announced salary raises and bonuses.

Nearly all firms (approx. 90 percent) above $2.0 million PPP have announced matches to both bonuses and raises. Boies not announcing yet and Cooley denying summer bonuses are the two most prominent exceptions in that group.

Roughly $1.4 million to $2 million PPP seems to be where it gets interesting. Around 75 percent of firms in that range have matched salaries but around half of those firms have refused to supplement those raises with bonuses.

TK has below 1.28M PPP and announced full salary match and bonuses (though bonuses were tied to hours/productivity). Will be interested to see how HB responds. In Texas, if V&E does something, BB has to respond. But then after that, it seems like HB, TK, Fulbright, Bracewell, Locke and Hunton/AK are sort of in the same group in that they don't necessarily have to do what V&E/BB do, but if a majority of that group does something, it seems like the rest have to fall in line. So now that Fulbright and TK have taken very different approaches, will be interesting to see how the respond.

A&P wanted to consider a year's worth of performance metrics, and noted that any year-end bonus decisions will factor in all available data, including the fact that some firms offered mid-year bonuses this year.

Thanks for adding additional firms to the list. I think this round of raises is the one that'll separate the top-paying firms from the rest. $200k is going to be the real test, however, because the psychological impact of that number.

I’m so glad the news about McGuireWoods hit ATL. They continually find ways to screw over their associates. Not only do they use the black box salary system to compress salaries to the point where mid level and senior associates get paid two class years behind the $190k scale (if they’re lucky) but the firm requires associates to bill 2050 to be eligible for a less than $15k end of year bonus. Truly unbelievable that they get away with it. I predict a mass exodus of associates in the near future.

I’m still amazed that BSF managed to get away with not raising attorney compensation in 2016. Think BSF will consider that fact in modifying its formula?
