Alston & Bird has raised pay for its Atlanta associates, with first-years getting a bump from $130,000 to $145,000 — matching what the firm pays first-years in its Charlotte, N.C., office. The raises, announced Wednesday evening, go into effect Jan. 1, 2008.

“There are a number of firms in the city with starting salaries above the $130,000 level, and we determined that the market is speaking to us and that we should raise our starting salary from $130,000 to $145,000 to assure that we remain competitive and compensate our associates fairly,” said Jonathan W. Lowe, the firm’s hiring partner.
