The BigLaw firm to which others look for a lead on how high bonuses for associates should be has spoken.

After a noteworthy upswing in 2012—following years in which the legal economy was faltering—Cravath, Swaine & Moore is paying exactly the same amount in 2013, between $10,000 and $60,000, the Wall Street Journal (sub. req.) reports.

Base salaries for associate attorneys at the firm are $160,000 to about $265,000, depending on seniority.
