Bonus news is coming in fast and furious now. For the associates this is a nice send-off before closing up shop for the Thanksgiving holiday… and inevitably reopening shop on Thursday afternoon to turn around another draft of that document. But for your humble Above the Law crew, everyone is just forcing us to delay that cocktail.
All right, no it isn’t.
The latest to announce is Freshfields, who already joined the fall bonus gang, so this is just an announcement of the annual bonuses. Unsurprisingly, the firm is following the market standard for its U.S. associates.
Class of 2020: $15,000 (prorated)
Class of 2019: $15,000
Class of 2018: $25,000
Class of 2017: $50,000
Class of 2016: $65,000
Class of 2015: $80,000
Class of 2014: $90,000
Class of 2013+: $100,000
Freshfields will pay out its bonuses on December 15, which helps make for a merry holiday season.
