If Cravath associates are all billing 2400+, then couldn't you read that chart to predict a 20% increase? SM is not the one who sets the floor.

Static with maybe a small bump for midlevels.

SM won't set the floor, but they're low key crushing it right now. Hopefully the scale shoots up!

It would be very surprising to me if there was a change. I think they'll stay the same.

Some in mid-March :lol: I can think of nothing that would immediately improve associate moral like moving up the bonus payment.

My firm pays them the business day before Christmas (which I think is great). We have an hours cutoff and don’t have a January-December billable year, for whatever that’s worth.

My guess is that they stay the same. I would be floored if they went up the same years salaries went up.

Usually the first Monday after Thanksgiving. I’m going to keep the hope alive. STB will raise.
