A substantial part of our job as legal headhunters is researching and assimilating Texas market information, and current salary ranges are an important part of the service we provide to our clients and candidates. Recent news of significant – huge - pay raises at some big firms in Dallas and Houston really caught our attention and cause us to reflect on the similar salary bumps in 2000, 2006, and 2009. The recent reports of pay increases of about 60%, which includes raises to base salaries as well as moving deferred compensation and bonuses to base are true for some firms, but not across the board. Though articles report that top performers at BigLaw firms saw about $120,000 added to their salaries last month and 1st year associates can expect to make $170,000 this year, other firms are being more cautious, realizing that corporate clients are still adjusting to bill rates and the last salary bumps for new associates.
