Legal Blog Round-Up: 12.2.2008 Edition

This week, I decided to round-up some of the downers in the legal community that are so unusual for this time of year. I know, bah humbug.

Just yesterday, the AmLawDaily blog reported that Davis, Polk & Wardwell announced it will halve associate bonuses, following in the footsteps of other law firms in the past two weeks. Bonuses began at $35K last year, but will only begin at $17,500 this year. The firm released a statement saying that this year was very economically challenging.


Above the Law has reported on lots of holiday party details recently, but late last week a Skadden tipster told them their firm was moving full steam ahead with their shindig. Other firms made the news in their post, including Debevoise & Plimpton. Although it was for opposite reasons; they have not yet announced their bonuses and they're scaling back their holiday party.

Whether or not your firm is scaling back their holiday fiestas and cutting back on the bonuses, let's just be thankful we have our jobs.

Cheers!

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP.
