American Firms Pay Premium

CK - Washington.   An Azur overview of salaries paid associates in Germany-located law offices points to premiums paid by America-based law firms. The fall 2006 compensation table list both base and maximum salaries.

There are small German firms with better deals but the Azur compilation is limited to larger firms. The German firms on the list may be better able to gauge the local market. The table includes domestic firms with excellent talent and superb attractiveness that pay at the low end of the scale.

Two factors may account for the premiums: Foreign firms don't match the stability of local firms, and their outlook on partnership may appear less comforting.
