Nationwide Pay Raise Watch: The Simpson Rumor

Simpson Thacher Bartlett LLP Abovethelaw Above the Law blog.jpgWe’ve checked with our sources at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett. And we hate to be the bearers of bad news, but the rumor that Simpson has raised starting salaries for its associates to $190,000 is UNTRUE. The “memo” that has been making the rounds is a fake.
So y’all can stop emailing us about this now. Thanks.
(But if you haven’t done so already, feel free to vote in our reader poll, concerning whether top New York law firms will raise salaries again before the end of the year. We’ll keep it open for a little while longer.)
Update: Comment on the rumor from Simpson partner James Cross is available here.
