Is there a spring bonus for BigLaw associates?

On 06/10, Milbank announced salary increases for all associates. 1st, 2nd and 3rd year associates received a $10,000 raise while 4th+ associates received a $15,000 raise, compared to the most recent salary scale update in 2018.

What does BigLaw stand for in law firm?

The memo also stated that Davis Polk expects to pay "year-end bonuses at least in the amount paid last year." Biglaw has no official definition but loosely refers to the nation’s largest law firms by headcount, smaller firms that pay at the market rate or medium-sized firms with international reach.

Why is the BigLaw salary scale called the Cravath scale?

It’s called the Cravath scale because it’s an offshoot of the Cravath system and because Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP is generally considered the trendsetter when it comes to associate salaries (despite the fact that other firms, such as Milbank and Simpson Thacher have been the first movers on first-year associate salaries in the past few years).
