Perkins Coie adopted new austerity measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic Wednesday, cutting salaries for associates and professional staff in addition to delaying payouts for partners.

The firm said in an email that it will enact a 15% salary reduction for non-partner lawyers, a 10% reduction in salary for staff members making between $125,000 and $200,000 per year and a 15% reduction for professionals making over $200,000. Those making less than $125,000 annually will not be affected.
