Winding up its best year ever, Houston-based trial firm Susman Godfrey has once again bested an industry standard, this time shattering the associate bonus pay scale set by Cravath, Swaine & Moore.

Susman Godfrey said Monday it will pay out median associate bonuses ranging from $110,000 to $225,000. That is more than double the associate bonus amounts announced in mid-November by Cravath, which set a year-end bonus scale ranging from $15,000 for first-year associates and up to $100,000 for senior associates.
