Two Philadelphia firms are bumping up first-year associate salaries. Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll plans to increase first-year associate salaries from $125,000 to $135,000, and Flaster Greenberg is raising starting pay from $120,000 to $130,000. Ballard Spahr also has expanded its bonus system from a traditional merit basis to one that includes an hour-based system. Flaster's Peter R. Spirgel said the pay increase puts the firm's starting salaries ahead of those at many New Jersey firms.
