Correction: A previous version of this report suggested Sidley Austin had raised associate base salaries across all class years. The error has been corrected.

With several rounds of bonus battles already in the books this season, Sidley Austin has joined in, announcing year-end bonuses in line with market rates, as well as extra rewards for top-billing associates. That follows a year in which the firm increased salaries to match the market and introduced new programs for associates to gain specialized business training and receive new titles for their seniority.
