The Richest Firms That Still Haven’t Announced Bonuses

The Richest Firms That Still Haven’t Announced Bonuses

Bonus season is running a little slower than we’d expect, much to the chagrin of associates around the country. We have a running scorecard of the firms that have moved so far but since one of the things we’ve gleaned from this season so far is that firms aren’t matching as quickly as we generally expect, we thought it was time to put together a list of the firms holding out on us.

So, as far as we can tell as of this moment, the following are the U.S.-based law firms (or their U.S.-based verein outpost) with profits per equity partner exceeding $1 million that have yet to announce bonuses over two weeks after the fact. Some, like Boies Schiller, don’t announce bonuses per se because they buck the traditional format and offer something more akin to a revenue share for associates. It’s a known formula, so associates aren’t really sweating over there. We’re keeping them on this list of “non-announcers” for completeness. Just take some of these names with that particular grain of salt.

Additionally, this list is limited to U.S. firms — not just firms operating in the U.S. Therefore holdouts like Linklaters aren’t included on this list.

Without further ado, here are the firms with $1M+ in profits per partner that have not yet announced bonuses to us. If you receive any information about these firms then let us know! Don’t just assume someone else told us. Please email bonus news to us (subject line: “[Firm Name] Bonus”) or text us (646-820-8477). Please include the memo if available. You can take a photo of the memo and send it via text or email if you don’t want to forward the original PDF or Word file.
