Salary Wars and Associate Hiring

ByLaw.net, from Office Managing Director
As a recruiting firm, we talk to both partners and associates at firms in every major legal marketplace on a daily basis. These conversations often concern why a lawyer is dissatisfied with his/her current firm or what kind of lawyer a firm seeks to hire. We have discovered that the salary increases that have taken place over the past several years have actually had the effect of straining professional relationships between partners and associates and also between partners. In the end, the more that money becomes the dominating factor defining the relationships among attorneys, the more the profession becomes like a business and less like, well, a profession.
