Greetings!
In response to requests we have received about our bonus policy with respect to associates joining (or re-joining) the firm after August 1, 2007 following two-year clerkships, I would like to confirm that those associates will be eligible to receive a $70,000 bonus. (As most of you know, the bonus for joining or re-joining the firm after a one-year clerkship is $50,000).
Please let me or Sandi Herbst know if you have any questions or would like further information.
