Several large law firms are making sweeping changes to their multitier structure of associate compensation, either by standardizing pay for all U.S. associates across cities or giving pay bumps for associates in smaller cities.

Meanwhile, midsize or small firms in those secondary markets could also face more talent competition by name brands in Big Law.
