Well, the wait is over. Willkie has announced spring bonuses, on the top-of-the-line Cravath scale….
Memo appears below. Congratulations, Willkie associates.
UPDATE (2:15 PM): One Willkie source had this reaction: “I’m grateful they matched, but they needed to. Nobody told me that 2010 was a slow year around here until it was bonus season. Anyway, morale here just got a decent boost.”
