We recently wondered, in the wake of Cadwalader announcing spring bonuses, whether Willkie Farr (and several other top New York firms) might follow suit.

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.”

If you have spring bonus news, you know how to reach us, by email and by text (646-820-8477 / 646-820-TIPS).
