hahahhahoh mani love it i love it i love itfor those of us who are SAs this summer in nyc, do you think that the salary bump will be reflected in our weekly, or should we expect to get the 145 base of 2790 / wk still? i think that the 160 base is something like 3080 / wk - which would be, well, fun.
I don't know that "virtually all" NYC biglaw will follow suit. While salary bumps like this usually do create a ripple effect, only three or four have followed suit so far and I don't know how far into '07 they can wait since spring is typically the time for lateral hiring (i.e. when mid-level associates jump ship for more cash). Considering that last year also saw a $15,000 raise, I would be surprised if there isn't a corresponding reduction in bonuses. But yea, if you're a SA, you'll be rolling.
