Like should I get an offer elsewhere and come back with it? Am I risking my current position it I just ask? It’s essentially a $100k raise at my current level, so I’m worried about not having clients who’ll pay that rate

Not following your precise question. Do you want to keep your current off-market salary and corresponding rate, or to take the NY salary and keep your current rate, or something else?

If you can pitch that you’d still be servicing NY clients and effectively a NY associate, maybe that helps? But you’d have to presume you’d work those hours I think...

Are you a Dentons or similar firm that franchises and isn’t true partnership? Because then the above tack doesn’t work

Does your practice group have business that’s handled in NYC? If so, I’d discuss it with your firm first before seeking an offer.

Is all the 401K that the employer match coming off the whole payslip or only from the base salary part? What do I need to know?

My OPT expires in Feb 2022, so not quite sure about the process if I’m not picked.

Any insights are appreciated!
