DLA Piper has pulled back on pay cuts announced May 15 that would have slashed compensation by 20 percent for some associates. A firmwide memo released Tuesday night stated that it would apply a 10 percent salary cut for all associates. The previously announced cuts called for a 10 percent reduction for first-year associates. Associates in other classes were to receive reductions on a case-by-case basis, based on performance level and class year.
