It’s said that March comes in like a lion, and when it comes to the 2022 salary wars, it couldn’t be more accurate. Biglaw firms have been announcing raises left and right, and recently, more and more firms that we’ve yet to hear from are finally speaking out, announcing their own brand new compensation grids.
One of those firms is Sheppard Mullin. With $867,416,000 gross revenue in 2020, the firm ranks at No. 50 in the most recent Am Law 100, so we know they’ll be able to afford life on the Cravath scale.
Here’s what the firm’s new salaries look like, retroactive to January 1:
Congratulations to everyone at the firm!
