After setting the pace for associate salary increases in 2016, Cravath Swaine & Moore has surpassed the pay scale set last week by Milbank Tweed, Hadley & McCloy.

As first noted on Monday (11 June) by Above the Law, Cravath has matched salaries set by Milbank for its junior associates. But for its mid-level and senior associates, the Wall Street firm has gone $5,000 and $10,000, respectively, beyond the rates set by Milbank.
