The latest firm to raise its clerkship bonuses: Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler. From a current clerk:
I have an offer from Patterson Belknap and I just received an email informing me that their bonus is 50K.
Keep up the good work.
To people with two clerkships or two years of clerking experience: no, we don’t know whether Patterson’s $50,000 clerkship bonus is “flat,” or whether they pay more for more than one clerkship year. If you have an offer from Patterson and are in this boat, please contact the firm and find out what their policy is. And then tell your friends here at ATL. Thanks!
