Allen & Overy struggles with pension gap
According to market reports, partners at Allen & Overy have been subsidizing a significant gap in its pension fund for the last four years.

The deficit reached approximately $48 million, or $155,000 per partner, at the financial year end of 2005. It is expected to fall to about $40 million by the end of 2006, however, analysts predict that it will take the magic circle firm a total of 10 years to eliminate the deficit completely. Partners at the firm have contributed a total of $4.4 million each year since 2002 in order to curb the deficit.

The figures indicate the scale of pension liabilities among all top UK firms. As per British laws, every limited liability partnership company must file its accounts within 10 months of the closing of the financial year. The pension gap, which was found by the accounting firm Smith & Williamson, has been described as the largest ever.

Weil Gotshal boosts starting salaries
Weil Gotshal & Manges is increasing salaries for associates in London by as much as 20%. It follows in the footsteps of other U.K. firms racing to keep up with their U.S. counterparts. The increase comes on the heels of a recruitment drive for corporate associates in London after recent downturns in the legal job market.

The firm will raise salaries for newly qualified lawyers (NQs) from $114,000 to $137,000 across Great Britain. This puts Weil Gotshal ahead of the curve, as its chief competitors Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Clifford Chance are still offering NQs $100,000. These firms, however, still lag behind the U.S.-based rival firm Debevoise & Plimpton, which is among the highest paying firms in London offering NQs around $150,000
