But One other Biglaw Agency Bites The Mud When It Comes To Matching DPW Salaries

One by one, Biglaw firms have been adopting the new Davis Polk salary scale. There may not be a formal memo announcing the latest lockstep salary match, but we’ve heard that associates at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan will soon be raking in the money.

Sources from Stroock tell us that the firm officially announced its DPW match earlier this week. As of July 1, salaries at the firm will look something like this:

  • 2021: $202,500
  • 2020: $205,000
  • 2019: $215,000
  • 2018: $240,000
  • 2017: $275,000
  • 2016: $305,000
  • 2015: $330,000
  • 2014: $350,000
  • 2013: $365,000

Congratulations to everyone at Stroock!

We depend on your tips to stay on top of this stuff. So when your firm matches, please text us (646-820-8477) or email us (subject line: “[Firm Name] Matches”). Please include the memo if available. You can take a photo of the memo and send it via text or email if you don’t want to forward the original PDF or Word file.
