U.S. Supreme Court clerks can command bigger-than-ever bonuses when they jump to BigLaw.
ATL had already reported that Sullivan & Cromwell and Skadden in New York were offering the $300,000 signing bonus. Now the blog says these firms have offered the same amount: Gibson Dunn; Jones Day; Munger, Tolles & Olson; and Paul Weiss.
The story also notes Greenberg Traurig’s new $145,000 starting salaries. “Green shoots, anyone?” the blog asks.
