Associates won’t be cursing out this Biglaw firm — not after they all just got big-time raises!


Of course Morrison & Foerster matched the latest round of associate raises — they aren’t mofos, if you know what I mean. Plus, you know, the firm made $1,165,000,000 in gross revenue last year (making it 34th on the Am Law 100), so it’d be in pretty bad form if they opted to sit out the latest in compensation wars.

  1. Class of 2021: $202,500

MoFo Makes Bold Decision To Spy On Its Attorneys


mofo law firm



Everyone knows one of the absolute worst parts of Biglaw is timekeeping. Sure, sure, it’s how firms get paid so we GET why it’s important, but it’s still a trudge. So the advent of newer technology designed to help out with this menial task is welcome. But, what that definitely doesn’t mean is that it’s okay for Biglaw firms to install software mandatorily on firm devices so they can watch every mouse click an associate makes.

But that’s exactly what’s going on at Morrison & Foerster.

Morrison & Foerster advised Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc. (“STAR”) in connection with the definitive merger agreement under which STAR will merge with and into Independence Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: IRT) (“IRT”), with IRT surviving as the continuing public company.

STAR is a non-traded public real estate investment trust that was formed to acquire and operate a diverse portfolio of well-positioned, institutional-quality apartment communities in targeted markets throughout the United States that have demonstrated high occupancy and income levels across market cycles.

The merger, which was announced on July 26, 2021, will join together two high-quality portfolios with complementary geographic footprints in the highly desirable Sunbelt region of the U.S. On a pro forma basis, the combined company will own a portfolio of 131 apartment communities comprising 38,000 units across 16 markets. The combined company is expected to have a pro forma equity market capitalization of approximately $4 billion and a pro forma total enterprise value of approximately $7 billion. The parties currently expect the transaction to close during the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions, including stockholder approval by STAR and IRT.

The MoFo team advising STAR in the transaction was led by corporate partner Heath Linsky, together with corporate associates Mary Katherine Rawls, Tyler Miller, Paul J. Aylward II, New York corporate partner Larry Medvinsky, and Washington, D.C. corporate partners Justin Salon and Andrew Campbell; San Diego tax partner Shane Shelley, New York tax partner Domnick Bozzetti, and associates Philip Jaworskyj and Kristie Espiritu; Washington, D.C. employment + labor of counsel Andrew Turnbull; and Los Angeles real estate partner Thomas Fileti and of counsel Susannah Cupp, and New York of counsel Tushna Gamadia.

Morrison & Foerster acted as international counsel to the Everstone Group in its USD1 billion strategic partnership with the Yondr Group to develop and operate data centers in India. Operating under the brand name “EverYondr,” the partnership brings together the Everstone Group’s deep knowledge of the Indian market and the Yondr Group’s technical expertise and track record in developing capacity at scale, with the goal of delivering unrivalled value to hyper-scale clients.

The Everstone Group is one of Asia’s premier investment firms with assets in excess of USD6 billion across private equity, real estate, infrastructure credit, and venture capital, while the Yondr Group is a global leader, developer, owner operator, and service provider of hyper-scale data centers.
As detailed in the Everstone Group’s press release, the EverYondr joint venture will support hyper-scale clients and service the rapidly growing Indian market. The investment will be used to fund the development and operation of multi-locational hyper-scale data center business across important geographies in India, including but not restricted to the metros of Mumbai Metropolitan Region, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai and National Capital Region (Delhi). The first facility located in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, for which land and power have already been acquired, will deliver 30MW by 2023 and 60MW of IT capacity when fully developed.
