In a world of follow-the-leader associate salary scales, Luce Forward is carving its own path. The firm has created 14 levels of associate compensation that will be affected by productivity and practice area. A highly productive third-year in a high-rate practice could make more than a fifth-year working fewer hours in a less lucrative practice. And in every level, associates who choose to work at the higher end of the productivity scale can make salaries similar to their peers at large, national firms.
