Reports out of Texas indicate Vinson & Elkins has tabbed Oct. 4 as the day its 2010 first-year associates can begin their careers at the Houston-based firm. The Texas Lawyer reports hiring partner Tom Leatherbury announced the news March 29. Starting annual salaries will be $160,000.

Vinson & Elkins expects 49 first-year associates to accept the job offers.  The firm is also offering Jan. 4, 2011 as a potential start date in case associates face a conflict with the October date.

The Texas Lawyer reports Vinson & Elkins followed the lead of many firms last fall when it made job offers to 2009 summer associates, but did not specify specific start dates or salaries. Leatherbury said Vinson & Elkins has had a particularly strong first quarter, which included a large number of energy transactions, “and we’re ready to get our new lawyers onboard.”


Vinson & Elkins is an international law firm with more than 700 attorneys and offices in 13 major cities around the world.
