Bonuses heating up?

An article (requires login) in today's Legal Intelligencer discusses the "heating up" of the Philadelphia area bonus structure among big firms. Granted, it's April, so the actual size of bonuses is complete conjecture. Still, it's nice to see someone discussing an upswing, given the desert of the past few years. Stay tuned.

Reed Smith on Mergers

Interesting article on Gregory Jordan, Reed Smith's managing partner, talking about further mergers in the industry.

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05206/543288.stm

I also hear rumor that RS is in preliminary discussions with a mid-size Chicago firm. More details as I get them.

I'm now hearing that the Reed Smith - Wildman Harrold merger is all but done, but for the final partnership votes.

Is Reed Smith on the fast track to become the next [shudder] Piper?

There seems to be a trend toward the knit blouse over the more traditional, but frumpy, silk. Also, lots of nice starched cotton dress shirts with french cuffs.

Shouldn't this be on the fb?

Since I seem to care and [sigh] no one else seems to -

The Reed Smith takeover of Wildman appears to be off, possiblly due to several large clients refusing to waive conflicts.

Good to see you pop up. The twins are doing well, all things considered. Feel free to PM for details, as the board is tired of hearing about it.

Hope all is well with you.

Any insight, horror stories etc? How do they determine placement on the pay scale - class year, hiring AG choice? Agency placement - good, bad, indifferent?

This Thread's Not Dead Yet... [Klunk]

Any recent info on salary structure among leading Pittsburgh firms? Most of what I've seen is stale. Was there any response to recent increases? Not that I'm expecting reports of $145k to start, but any info would be appreciated.

Pittsburgh Salaries

From today's Pittsburgh Business Times: New 1L salaries for Pittsburgh offices of large firms --

Reed Smith -- $120,000, effective July 1 (vs. $125,000 in Philly)
Kirkpatrick & Lockhart -- no comment (2005 was $110,000; surely it will match Reed Smith)
Morgan Lewis -- $135,000 (I believe retro to January 1)
Buchanan Ingersoll -- $115,000 (effective March 7)
Pepper Hamilton -- $125,000 (March 1)
