patent vs regular law at big firms

Hi, I am curious whether big firms start off new associates at the same salary as other attorneys (non-ip/patent) or whether we get more because we're more valuable.

You don't appear to have self-esteem issues. Smiley
 
Associates at big firms are typically paid the same salaries regardless of their practice areas.

Isaac,
 
That is not always the case. I can tell you that here in the Southeast, it is typically the case that IP folks are paid higher than associates in other practice areas.  It has been that way for a few years now.

I also heard that a few large firms in So Cal have been differenting between Patent Litigators ($160K) and Generalist ($145K) in terms of salaries for the first year associates - there should be some articles on the net about this

Thanks.   After doing some homework on the issue, I am beginning to wonder if my own experience is atypical.
