Nationwide Pay Raise Watch: Fulbright & Jaworski (D.C.)

Fulbright Jaworski LLP Abovethelaw Above the Law blog.jpgNo, we haven’t heard anything about Fulbright & Jaworski raising associate salaries in Texas. If you hear anything, please email us.
But how about D.C.? That we can help with. From a tipster in Fulbright’s Washington office:

Fulbright has raised. There’s still no memo available, and no one expects one, as the numbers were announced orally at a meeting last Friday. I’m an F&J associate… and was at the meeting.

So no memo. But we do have the firm’s schedule of base salaries and bonuses, payable at different hours levels (up to 2500 hours — yikes).
You can check it all out — it’s a pretty elaborate scale, we’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on it — after the jump.

Per previous policy, once you hit 1900, up to 150 of pro bono and other qualified hours count towards the bonus. That is, once you hit 1900 hours, the 150 of qualified hours counts towards higher bonus levels, not the 1900 level.
Salary is retroactive to July 1.
