Hogan Lovells, Reed Smith (I think) are only other market paying firms


Also DLA piper

I think Troutman is just under market in Philly for base, but well below for bonuses.


Both are far below cravath scale in pay, but still good pay for Philly.


Never mind. It looks like they do now. Interesting

I have this partner who doesn’t enjoy working with me because I do below avg work for her but she has little choice of foot soldiers. I do below avg work for her because she consistently gives me little time to do huge tasks (and usually at odd hours) and doesn’t involve me in what finally goes to the client (and I have no visibility on the client’s expectations, response, feedback, expected timeline). How do we (mainly I) get out of this painful cycle?


Thoughts on Allen & Ovary M&A NY?

Interesting article in American lawyer about returning to the office. Funny quotes…

“Another said they sensed a “shift in commitment at all levels in the firm.”

“In the past ‘life’ was organized around work with clients being the center of our focus. Now colleagues seem to think that work can be organized around life whether that is walking the dog, picking up from nursery or isolating because of upcoming holidays. The business of law and serving the clients has lost priority.”
