In late March, we made a special shout-out to Squire Sanders & Dempsey. It hadn’t participated in the latest round of associate pay raises, and several of you had complained about that to us. So we highlighted their presence on the LIST OF SHAME.
Weeks and weeks passed. But now, after taking its sweet time about it, the firm has followed suit. From a tipster:
Squire Sanders raised salaries last Friday. In Miami, they joined Holland & Knight, among others, at $130k for first years (a $15k raise). They raised senior associates by $20k.
All associates in Miami are still well behind Weil Gotshal and Boies Schiller (at $160k), somewhat behind Hunton & Williams and McDermott Will (at $145k), and just behind Greenberg Traurig (at $135k). Apparently, they’re content to be third-to-fourth tier. But something is something.
No idea how the raises shook out at other offices, but I do know that they occurred.
If you happen to know what Squire Sanders did in its other offices, please add comments to this post.
