Winston & Strawn is another firm that has matched the new rates in their locations – Charlotte, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Menlo Park, New York, Newark, and Washington D.C.

A total of 54 law firms have already announced some sort of change to their salaries for associates. For most it took less than a week for them to decide that they would match everyone else, keeping themselves on the same field when attracting top talent. First year associates are one of the most valuable parts of a firm because they are willing to put in the long hours day after day to show their commitment to their law firm, helping the firm increase its revenue so it understandable that law firms across the country are willing to pay a little more to get the best associates.



Have you heard of any law firms that matched the rates but are missing from the list? Let us know in the comments.
