Think salaries will rise at straits? What's the firm culture there like btw
A JV/merger between local and foreign firm has never resulted in salary increases at the local firm. Rather, JLVs create East Berlin-West Berlin splits between the two halves of the JV. An associate joining the JLV via the foreign route will be paid international rates whilst an associate joining the JLV via the local route will be paid local rates.

I don't foresee this latest JLV being an exception.
