Skaddenfreude: Baker Botts, Munger Tolles

Two quick pieces of news. First, multiple sources at Baker Botts in New York confirm that “Baker Botts NY has gone to market — retroactive to January 1.”
Second, we have some information about Munger, Tolles & Olson — the super-prestigious L.A. firm with a knack for scooping up SCOTUS clerks. We reprint the info after the jump.

We actually received this a little while ago, but it got lost in our highly cluttered inbox. Here’s the 411 on Munger:
wanted to tip you off to munger tolles’s raise. basically matches latham, gibson, and omm, the lame 3 of LA, which is highly unprestigious and unbecoming of munger
2006: 145
2005: 155
2004: 170
2003: 190
2002: 210
2001: 225
2000: 240
1999: 250
prior to 99: determined individually
paper memo dated 2/7/07; re line is “Associate Salaries for 2007″
retroactive to 1/1
letter states that these raises are “substantial.” the letter does not state that the firm no longer intends to compete with quinn and keker & van nest for elite grads (they both pay 160, and maybe irell will too)
