Due to reporting errors, a Jan. 23 article about Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati’s associate bonus program was substantially in error. The story incorrectly asserted that the firm is slashing associate bonuses by 75 percent. The story compared bonuses awarded in the 2002-03 fiscal year with those in fiscal 2001-02. While the 2002-03 bonus numbers were correct, the figures for the prior year were not. Those prior year figures were derived from an internal Wilson memo that estimated bonuses for the coming year. However, the firm revised those numbers in a later memorandum. The later figures were lower than the initial projections. The story correctly reported that Wilson is for the first time imposing a minimum hours requirement for bonuses. But it should have said that the size of current bonuses would be comparable to last year’s, when award amounts ranged from $2,500 to $30,000. We regret the errors.
