Nationwide Pay Raise Watch: Baker & McKenzie

Baker McKenzie Abovethelaw Above the Law blog.jpgRemember that cute little bar graph, prepared by some disgruntled people in the Washington office of Baker & McKenzie? It looks like it worked.
A source at the firm reports that the firm just raised associate salaries. An associates’ meeting was held earlier today. We haven’t seen the memo yet, but here are the numbers (emphasis added):

Old pay scale:

145/155/170/190/210/220/230/240

New pay scale (retroactive to 7/1):

160/170/190/210/230/250/265/280

Also, from a meeting earlier in the week, in which the upcoming recruiting season was discussed:

“The hiring partner made a comment about the bar chart posted on the web, mentioned that he was evaluating the situation, and mentioned AboveTheLaw by name. Then today we got the raise news.”

Update: We now have the Baker & McKenzie – DC memo. We’ve posted it after the jump.
