Multiple sources have just confirmed to ATL that Paul Weiss has matched the $50,000 clerkship bonus paid by Sullivan & Cromwell and Simpson Thacher & Bartlett.
The head of recruiting called people with outstanding offers today to make the announcement.
From a source:

PLEASE post this news so that it will continue to put pressure on the other NY-based firms. The more publicity ATL gives this, the more buzz there is in the market. It’s a beautiful thing for us lowly law clerks.

Congratulations to Paul Weiss for joining this very select group. We predict that $35k is soon going to start looking pretty paltry in certain quarters.
