Weil, Gotshal & Manges said Thursday that it will match the salary scale set by Cravath, Swaine & Moore earlier this week for its associates, according to an internal firm memo.

The announcement, along with news that Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton; Kirkland & Ellis; Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and Willkie Farr & Gallagher are also raising salaries, means at least half-a-dozen law firms have succumbed to the pressure to raise associate compensation to new heights in just 24 hours.
