Help needed! I’m negotiating my raise this year (for the first time). It would be extremely helpful if any comparatively placed attorneys would be willing to disclose their salaries for me to use as ammo 😜 Looking for these parameters:
Nashville - 3-4 YOE - Big Law (L&E most helpful, e.g. Littler, Ogletree)

You’re in big law, but are negotiating your salary?

I will be advocating for a higher raise because I am underpaid for Nashville big law market. Let me clarify, our raises are lockstep/scale but vary based on locality. The scale for Nashville is too low as compared to our competitors here. My RMP will be raising this to the management committee on my behalf and it will be helpful if I can show comparative salaries.

Payscale.com

I can assist on basically all of this. DM me

How to negotiate a raise for a promotion?

I've been offered a job in a different group at the same company that would be a promotion and a 10% raise on my current salary. I just received a 3% annual raise 1 month ago and the 10% is on top of that. My new salary would be $106k.

Market value would be closer to $110-120k based on what I've been told by recruiters for similar roles.

Any advice for how to negotiate to get the offer closer to market value?

Advice needed:

I am working on a 3y local contract in the US since 2.5y - long-story, but wife never made it over and now wants me to come home.

I am responsible for a major strategic product and CEO really wants to keep me (incl promotion). I can transfer back, but wouldn’t be guaranteed a job at same level. I expect better opportunities, if my CEO would push for me, but don’t know how to ask him, given that he has a conflicting interest.

How would you ask? Or just apply for jobs at home?
