Winding down what firm leadership said was another successful year, Houston-based trial firm Susman Godfrey again smashed the market rate for associate bonuses by dramatically besting the scale set by Milbank.

Susman Godfrey announced Monday that it will pay many of its associates six-figure bonuses for 2019, depending on their class year and performance. The median bonus at the first-year level, for example, is $120,000, and the median bonus for the most senior associates is $235,000.
