After ceding the first-mover position to Baker McKenzie this Big Law bonus season, Cravath, Swaine & Moore rolled out its 2022 year-end bonus scale in a Tuesday email to associates.

The email contains a bonus scale that mirrors Cravath’s 2021 scale, which kicked off last year’s bonus season the third week of November. Once again, first-years earn a pro-rated $15,000, second-years get $20,000, and the scale increases up to $105,000 for seventh-years.
