Ex-Nixon Peabody Associate Sues for Share of Landing Big Client

An ex-Nixon Peabody associate, given a $75,000 bonus for helping to bring in a key client, is suing the firm, claiming the bonus fell far short of what was promised.

Noah Doolittle wants $266,000, the full bonus he says he’s entitled to receive.

That’s 5 percent of the $5.32 million in fees the firm collected from the client in 2008, the New York Law Journal reports in an article about Doolittle’s suit.

Nixon Peabody, however, contends that the bonus structure was discretionary and that Doolittle was paid “in accordance with its established salary and bonus policies.”
