Four more firms — Cooley Godward, Fenwick & West, DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary and Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton — said Thursday they are bumping up associate salaries, following the lead of L.A.-based firms.

All four firms matched the newly emerging benchmark for first-years of $135,000. Cooley is lifting other years by $5,000 to $10,000, while Sheppard is raising other years by $5,000. At both firms, fourth-years will now earn $170,000 and seventh-years $210,000, as is the case with the handful of L.A. and now Bay Area firms that have increased pay in recent weeks.
