Licensed recent bonuses

Bonus messages now come fast and furious. For the staff, this is a nice goodbye before they close for the Thanksgiving holiday … and inevitably reopen on Thursday afternoon to flip another draft of this document. But for your humble Above the Law crew, we’re all just forcing us to postpone this cocktail.

Well no it isn’t.

The final announcement is Freshfields, who has already joined the fall bonus gang. So this is just an announcement of the annual bonuses. Not surprisingly, the company follows the market standard for its U.S. workforce.

2020 Class: $ 15,000 (pro-rata)
2019 Class: $ 15,000
Class of 2018: $ 25,000
Class of 2017: $ 50,000
Class of 2016: $ 65,000
2015 Class: $ 80,000
2014 Class: $ 90,000
2013+ Class: $ 100,000

Freshfields pays out its bonuses on December 15th, contributing to a merry Christmas season.
