This is probably my least favorite TLS post ever because its completely factually incorrect.

Disagree? Herbert Smith Freehills is a V100 and is paying well below 160k. That is not considered biglaw.

So if I go to Jones Day's NY office and make 160k I work in biglaw, but if I go to their Atlanta office and make 150k I work in midlaw?

Glad we made that clear.
