Texas associates with Andrews Kurth will get a big, fat paycheck in mid-September because of a new pay scale that’s retroactive to Aug. 1.

Andrews Kurth, which has 110 associates in Texas and is based in Houston, became the latest BigTex firm to announce raises for its associates in the wake of a new market rate set by Vinson & Elkins in July. At that time, Andrews Kurth announced it would move to the new base salary rate of $160,000 for first-year associates and $170,000 for second-years, but the firm planned to study compensation for other associates.
