Elite Law Firm Raises Pay For First Time In Years
The New York law firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore announced in a memo this week that it is increasing the annual salary it pays to first-year lawyers, from $160,000 to $180,000, for the first time in nearly a decade.
Salaries for other associates are also increasing, in what is being seen as an unusual move that is a bellwether for the industry.
