I’m a recruiter and work with Am Law firms, including insurance defense. That’s a strong salary for that category, even in CA. Go for it.

Sure thing. If you get a share of those payouts, you’re in good shape on comp!

I would say it’s on the low end. My (ID) firm which is considered boutique but has some big clients (I’m repeating what others have said verbatim) pays around that for a 4-5 year. We are no where near Am Law 200.

That’s really good for insurance defense at 4-5 years!

Yeah that’s not bad. I’m 4years and at $115k in the IE. mine is low but I WFH whenever I want, full autonomy over my files and time off always granted.

I was offered partnership w/ equity at a small firm (15 attorneys, half are PI). Midsize market, not in a large city. I have 10 years of experience.

Pre-Partnership total comp was approx., $200,000 plus health insurance fully paid and 401k profit share contributions.

Partnership: salary went up by $50k w/ higher bonus potential. End of year fees are usually $8-900k/year. Half I originate, half I don’t. This year is high: already at $600k.

What do you think about compensation?

Why do firms have billable minimums or requirements for associates? This may be a stupid question. If an associate works really hard and delivers good work product in a timely manner, while also seeking additional assignments when needed, don’t the billable hours take care of itself? If I’m seeking more work and not getting any, whose fault is that? I’ve been told I do really good work. But this whole billable requirement thing really pisses me off.
