Associate Bonus Watch: Davis Polk Matches the Cravath Spring Bonuses!

The venerable and aesthetically pleasing law firm of Davis Polk has decided to join in the springtime bonus party. They’ve just announced their spring bonuses — and they’re matching the generous Cravath scale, not the Sullivan & Cromwell scale (which is slightly lower for more-senior associates).

Congratulations, DPW associates. It may have taken a while — perhaps the firm’s management reshuffle news delayed the announcement? — but good things come to those who wait.

Memo after jump.
