The devoted readership of ATL down in ATL will appreciate this update. From an article by Meredith Hobbs in yesterday’s Fulton County Daily Report:
More law firms have capitulated in Atlanta’s second round of pay raises this year.
Jones Day will raise starting pay to $150,000, and Sutherland Asbill & Brennan and Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker will go to $145,000 — an increase of $15,000 at each firm.
The raises are effective Jan. 1, 2008, when pay raises go into effect at several other Atlanta firms, including Alston & Bird, King & Spalding and Troutman Sanders.
The rest of the article, which contains discussion of salaries for more senior associates (compression!!! aargh!!!), is available here.
