Boies, Schiller & Flexner has moved well ahead of the law firm pack in this year’s bonus race. As reported early Wednesday by Above the Law, the litigation powerhouse will pay its associates awards averaging “over $75,000″ for lawyers who’ve been with the firm for at least a year to “more than $200,000″ for the “highest-performing” associates. (Sibling blog The Careerist has a report on the bonuses here.)

The scale is substantially higher than the awards announced previously by such firms as Susman Godfrey, Quinn, Emanuel, Urquhart & Sullivan, and Cahill Gordon & Reindell, which all went well beyond the low bonus bar set early in the season by Cravath, Swaine & Moore.
