MoFo Delights With Affiliate Raises

Associates won’t be cursing out this Biglaw firm — not after they all just got big-time raises!

Of course Morrison & Foerster matched the latest round of associate raises — they aren’t mofos, if you know what I mean. Plus, you know, the firm made $1,165,000,000 in gross revenue last year (making it 34th on the Am Law 100), so it’d be in pretty bad form if they opted to sit out the latest in compensation wars.

The new salary scale at MoFo is as follows, effective July 1:

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

And summer associates will also see the benefit of these raises (matched to the class of 2021).

Congrats to MoFo associates on their raises!
