Ever since Biglaw started bestowing raises and bonuses upon associates, we’ve received a slew of emails from law firm support staff wondering what their fate may be as the Benjamins continue to rain down upon their colleagues. After all, it takes an army for law firms this large to run, and the behind-the-scenes battalions of staff members deserve their due, too.
Which firms have gone out of their way to show their support staff that they truly matter? Which firms have dipped into their pockets to say thank you to their staff?
This is exactly what we’d like to know. If your firm has increased wages for staff or offered bonuses to staff members, please be sure to reach out to us. We want to know if your firm is really spreading the wealth to all employees.
Remember everyone, we depend on your tips to stay on top of compensation updates, so when your firm announces or matches, please text us (646-820-8477) or email us (subject line: “[Firm Name] Bonus/Matches”). Please include the memo if available. You can take a photo of the memo and send it via text or email if you don’t want to forward the original PDF or Word file.
And if you’d like to sign up for ATL’s Bonus Alerts (which is the alert list we also use for salary announcements), please scroll down and enter your email address in the box below this post. If you previously signed up for the bonus alerts, you don’t need to do anything. You’ll receive an email notification within minutes of each bonus announcement that we publish. Thanks for your help!
