While many big firms that have remained busy are handing out bonuses to young lawyers, Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton and Paul Hastings are sharing the wealth with other employees as well, paying out special bonuses to staff.

Shepard Mullin staff and paralegals will receive a bonus equal to one week’s pay on June 25, according to a memo obtained by The American Lawyer. Paul Hastings stated in a memo obtained by The American Lawyer that full-time and part-time support staff, paralegals and other timekeepers will be paid $1,500, or the “equivalent in local currency” at the end of April.
