I’m in the process of doing this now. I’m a 2nd year so it felt weird negotiating but I’m glad I did because I got a signing bonus

I said I had another offer with x amount but that I thought the this firm was a better match. Also mentioned experience and relocation. Going from big law to midsized if that helps.

I sent an email to all and indicated I wanted to set up a meeting to discuss my compensation, to please let me know who I should meet with to discuss this and when they are available.

Yes. I negotiated my salary coming on board and negotiate my salary every year during my annual review based on my production. I always have a walk in number and how I justify that number, and a floor amount that I’m willing to accept but if I have to accept the floor amount I make sure that I am getting enough time off or other support/benefits (cle fees and bar dues) to make up for it.

I negotiated it with the person who called and offered me the job and stated what the starting salary was going to be. It was one of the managing partners, and I figured if he was not the correct person to speak to, he would let me know. Good luck!!!
