Has anybody been successful asking for a raise while being paid in a lockstep comp system? Our pay scale is below market, so I want to ask for a bump. More importantly, who should I be asking? HR? Partners?

How many attorneys are in your firm/ office? Are you going to advocate for across the board increase to get to market or just you being taken out of lockstep?

Any possible way to differentiate yourself from the class?

Generally lockstep is a firm wide policy that doesn’t deviate until of counsel / non partnership track.

It’s a tricky conversation, if there is a partner that your close to it might be easier to ask him if the firm has plans to come up to market. Good luck!

Partners, not HR

Thanks, was thinking the same but I don’t want to get bounced to HR by the partner after asking. Good to know.
