On the heels of announcements by Proskauer Rose, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett and Winston & Strawn, the fledgling but high-powered litigation boutique Selendy & Gay is the latest law firm to match the associate salary scale set by Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy early last week.

A group of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan lawyers led by partners Faith Gay and Philippe Selendy left to found Selendy & Gay just four months ago. It has been a messy divorce, with Quinn Emanuel founder John Quinn first accusing Gay of “ingratitude,” and the departing lawyers now battling their former firm over legal fees.
