Compared with metropolitan areas, Connecticut is slow to embrace law firm management trends. It's no different with the latest round of first-year associate wage hikes. Privately, Connecticut-anchored law firms may curse the decision by top-tier New York firms to raise their entry-level salaries to $160,000. But publicly, their attitude is: Why rush to act? Several firm leaders, such as Cummings & Lockwood's Jonathan Mills, have said they'll reassess associate salaries midyear to see if they're competitive.
