Can somebody comment on this firm who has worked there or who knows about them (salary, benefits, type of work, etc.). DC branch specifically, but any branch information would work (LA, SF, NY, SD, etc)

Necrobump. For a large firm, there is almost ZERO information regarding offer rates and how the interview process goes. Anyone know anything?

Salary is below biglaw, starting around 90-100k. Firm gives a lot of experience to young associates, so you won't be doing just lame doc review. Primarily an insurance defense shop, but has other practices in employment, insurance defense, workers comp, and I think business litigation. Hope that helps!

Thanks. I don't know where you got the 90-100k figure from, though. The last published figure is 85k in 2009. There's got to be more info somewhere. LBBS has 850 attorneys, I know you're out there!

Sorry for the late reply. I was offered a position there two years ago as a first year associate at the 90-100k range + bonus. The glassdoor figures are a bit dated it seems.

Thanks. I heard there was no lockstep salary in place. How do bonuses/raises work? Since two years ago, do you think starting salary has gone up?
