Smaller offices can vary. Wilson and Cooley I think pay market. K&L probably doesn't, same for DWT.

According to NALP: http://www.nalpdirectory.com/Page.cfm?PageID=34
Perkins - 165K
KL Gates - 165K
Stoel Rives - 145K
DWT - 142.5K
Lane Powell - 130K

The satellite offices for SF firms tend to pay 180, although there are fewer spots and they have higher billable requirements.

All of them. Hit up all of the firms w/ summer programs. There aren't really that many. And focus on the ones that have more than one SA position.

I would do this sooner than later, too. A few of the bigger firms might wait until after local OCIs, but others will do CBs and offers before (i.e. starting in the next week).
