In case they interest you, we reprint the Debevoise and LeBoeuf bonus memos, after the jump.

We are pleased to announce 2006 bonuses for U.S.-based associates in good standing at the following class levels. The bonuses, which will be received in early January, will be subject to the usual pro-rations for part-time programs and lengths of service of less than the entire year:
2006 $30,000 (pro-rated)
2005 $35,000
2004 $40,000
2003 $45,000
2002 $50,000
2001 $55,000
2000 $60,000
1999 (and prior years) $65,000
We appreciate your hard work throughout the year, and know that for many of you there is a lot of work left between now and year-end. Thanks for all your contributions and best wishes for the holidays and for the New Year.
