Sometimes Christmas strikes twice.
Last week, Katten Muchin Rosenman announced its year-end bonuses. Money is a great way to say thank you, after all. Said thank you even came with additional party favors for employees whose hours met the firm’s 2000 hour mark.
The pot is even sweeter now that they are also matching the special bonus wave brought in by Davis Polk.
It’s a pretty penny! Here’s the part where I tell you to put it toward your student loans. But hey, you know what else is cool? Uber Eats — especially if you’re working home. Be sure to tip your drivers at least 20%!

We like hearing about bonuses almost as much as you enjoy spending them. As soon as your firm’s memo comes out, please email it to us (subject line: “[Firm Name] Bonus”) or text us (646-820-8477). 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 Salary & Bonus Alerts, 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.
[UPDATE: Originally we said this would be given to those who exceeded expectations, but we’ve been told the 2000 hour threshold is the base billable target]
