Munger, Tolles & Olson has signed up an astonishing four former Supreme Court clerks, a coup that a high court expert calls an "unheard of bonanza" for a firm of its size and location. The competitive signing bonus helped, of course, but another selling point may be that the firm already boasts 15 former Court clerks -- a message to the potential associates that they, too, could be happy there. For any firm, connections with top law schools and the judicial system are key to getting such star recruits.
