Watching US salaries increase AGAIN and wondering why Canadian firms don’t have the same pressure to follow these raises. Is it the relatively small number of big firms? Is it that all the big firm managers work together to keep the market in line? Is it the lack of reporting in the Canadian legal press? I feel like we are all getting screwed.

You ARE getting screwed. It IS better here. Canadian firms are colluding and selling you lies about the US experience. Signed, ex Canadian big law.

Agree with Cooley. Former Canadian in NY. Full bonus for 1900 hrs last year and work is significantly more interesting

I worked as many hours in Canada as I do here, target or not…

I’m not defensive. Somebody billing 1700 shouldn’t come to the US unless they go to a lifestyle firm (which exist). But the many, many people (at least at the “seven sisters” (ugh)) billing 1900+ plus pro Bono plus committees etc. are absolutely getting ripped off.

I’m moving home to Canada from US big law if it helps? But I don’t want to work at a Canadian firm lol doesn’t seem worth it

I mean salaries here are way below the US, but we don’t have 2000 hour targets.

Most US firms don’t either, but also it takes fewer hours worked to bill in the US than in Canada (from my own personal experience)
