Biglaw Salary in Portland, Oregon?

Postby MantisToboggan » Sun Nov 04, 2018 11:37 pm

Anyone?

Typical pay for 1st year associates? What about 2nd-3rd year moving from major market?

The big firms here pay their first years $110k-140k. I think there are a few big firms with satellite offices here that pay 180k but they don't have many attorneys and take 0-1 summers.

This is all on the Nalp website.

But if I recall correctly:

Schwabe, Williamson, and Wyatt- 110
Tonkon Torp- 120
Miller Nash Graham Dunn- 120
Davis Wright Tremaine-120
Stoel Rives- 125
Perkins Coie- 140 (1850 hours); 155 (1950 hours)

I'm not sure you would have enough pull as a second year to negotiate a substantial increase. Are you a student right now? Feel free to PM me. The Portland market is pretty small and requires serious ties.
