The law firm associate salary race appears to be coming to a close. Arnold & Porter, Howrey, Venable, and WilmerHale have all joined onto the recent wave of pay increases that boosted first-year salaries by $10,000 to $135,000 annually. A few more tidbits: At Venable, all associates will see an increase of $10,000, but because pay doesn’t move in lockstep beyond the second year, the amount will vary for third-years and above. At Wilmer, the firm has advertised its new rates online. Midlevel associates take note: Pay for third-years is $160,000, $180,000 for fourth-years, and $200,000 for fifth-years. The firm declined comment on why it posted salaries on the Web.
