Yes but eligibility will be determined in a manner similar to that broken pool cue scene from the dark knight

They will give out bonuses and they will match. Given how low hours have been though, many may not be eligible to receive a full market bonus. It is cringe worthy for sure but at the end of the day, bonuses are for the work associates have done all year and they are somewhat factored in to comp in biglaw as they are pretty standard each year. I highly doubt it will be put out there is writing like it usually is though. Just a quiet deposit into people’s bank accounts instead maybe…

I believe substantially less than half will

Right. Substantially less than half are bonus eligible, most likely.

Yes, they will give out bonuses. Yes, they will match.

It would be a bad look if they paid bonuses. They probably would have been able to keep those people on staff with that money.

They will give out bonuses since right now their stance is they don't have enough work for their associates, but if they don't give bonuses to those who made hours then their stance must change to not having enough money and their partners being greedy. They surely want people to leave on their own at this point, but they won't be able to recover from too many false narratives

I’m an IP associate (focused mainly on trademarks) in an AMLaw 200 firm (slightly below NY market pay) and I’m curious to know what IP groups (mainly trademark related practices) at V50 firms are like. My practice is relatively chill. No major fires to put out - steady and predictable 8-9 billable hours a day. I can generally not work on weekends. Am I at a unicorn shop or is this normal for Trademark practices?

My assistant gets visibly overwhelmed by basic tasks like printing or filing. She gets upset when we ask her to help with scheduling or answer phones during meetings. She will respond that simple assignments are “too hard.” At this point, I’m not sure what she thinks her job is. She is assigned to me and a partner, but it’s the same for both of us. She has worked with the partner since he was a first year so he has accepted it. Is there anything that I can do as an associate?
