I have been interviewing for various TM positions at law firms, and the offers have been waaay lower, ranging from 135K (albeit for 1700 billable req) at an AmLaw 100 in a market like Atl/Dallas, to 145K at a regional midlaw firm for 1800 hours.

I was thinking anything 180K+ would be reserved for true biglaw firms in the NYC/SF/DC offices. By "regional big firm" do you mean a branch office of an amlaw 100 biglaw firm? Or truly a large regional firm, and not amlaw100?


It's a med-large regional firm (150ish attorneys). High COL area.
