After a slow start in Big Law this week in announcing year-end bonuses for associates, major law firms became falling in line, with several on Thursday and Friday matching the bonus scale set last week by others.

The latest firms to match bonus scales, starting at $15,000 and $20,000 for junior associates and up to $115,000 for the most senior associates, include Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison; Davis Polk & Wardwell; Debevoise & Plimpton; Milbank; Willkie Farr & Gallagher; Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton; Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson; Paul Hastings; Baker Botts; Hogan Lovells; and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
