"Pay is good but it's beginning to fall behind other US firms."
First year trainee, London
"Trainee pay isn't bad but, at associate level, we're lagging behind other American firms."
Second year trainee, London
"The trainee salary is similar to most law firms in the City, though it is slightly behind trainee salaries in other American firms. The new qualifier salary is lower than other US firms."
First year trainee, London
"I am happy with the pay in Orrick – we're on par with magic circle firms in the UK. Trainees are not eligible for bonuses."
Second year trainee, London
"Very reasonable. We aren't up there with some firms but our hours are better so I'm happy with the compromise."
First year trainee, London
"I think we're paid very well, though perhaps our salaries do not reach the same levels as other American firms."
Second year trainee, London
"Trainees and new qualifiers are paid well – at least at (and, in some cases, above) magic circle levels – but there is a feeling that the new qualifiers salary should be raised to get closer to the recent remuneration boom carried out by other American firms."

"I think we are paid very well. There are no bonuses for trainees but I think that is fair enough!"

"The pay is above average for a firm in the City so I am pleased. I am not familiar on the bonus pay system operating in the firm yet."
First year trainee, London
"The Orrick trainee salary is competitive and higher than most UK firms, however, it can arguably lag behind other US firms, the position is similar post-qualification."
