Entry Level or Lateral Attorneys

Entry Level or Lateral Attorneys

We are committed to recruiting, retaining, developing and promoting the best legal talent. Accordingly, the total compensation package—base salary, bonus and benefits—for all lawyers at the firm is highly competitive with that of other major law firms.

We have a highly competitive total compensation package for all associates, senior associates and counsel that recognizes and rewards an individual lawyer’s skill level and the value of his or her overall contributions each year. Our performance-based model aligns well with our clients’ focus on value delivered, rather than simply hours billed. Our overall objective in implementing a performance-based compensation model was to recognize and reward strong performance at all levels, and to recognize and reward lawyers for the qualities and contributions that both the firm and our clients value most.
