Texans. Just got an offer from a V10 to relocate down and do litigation. Excited but the offer was 20k below market. Talked to managing partner and they said it’s the market in Houston so if I can find other firms paying full market they will raise it since I’ll be the only jr. - mid level. So give me names, who pays cravath in Houston?

Cravath is market in Houston. The partner is full of it. LW and Kirkland pay market. V&E, Baker Botts, and Bracewell pay market. Gibson Dunn might not, though.

Baker McKenzie does indeed pay market in Texas

Not sure what that partner is talking about. Basically all the big firms in Houston pay market.

That’s what I thought. In his defense he said he legit didn’t know and that he would call HR after we chatted.

Thanks all this is the data I needed. Just sent an email to the partner to chat.

See the weird thing is he said market salary and bonuses same as the V10 I’m currently at but then he said a number that was 20k less so maybe he really just doesn’t know what market is.

Like all others have said..most of the big firms pay market in Houston

Are they requiring you to take the TX bar before moving?

No. But I will take it the next cycle

Curious where you are relocating from that you need TX bar (CA?)? I thought most major markets are now UBE.

Correct. I’m CA barred.
