Re: Debevoise thread on tls

it's only been one day and elie's article is even worse than i remember. what a shameless puff piece.

Re: Debevoise thread on tls

elie is incredulous that someone at his precious old firm would be stupid enough to write down a timeline for pushing out black associates, but i wonder if he would act the same way if this happened at jones day. am i supposed to be surprised that law firm partners have racist dim views of the abili...

I appreciate hogan for moving in dc but covingtoning in Denver is shitty. They'll probably get away with it too since they're a major player there.

Baker McKenzie matched with bonus. Mid-year bonuses have hours requirement, but will also be paid at year end if you hit 2000 by end of year if you weren't eligible now.

Re: Skadden to hours contingent bonus!

I think Latham's official position on lathaming is that they were the good guys, it was just a poor pr move. that's why Latham's communications team is taking its time to perfect the wording of its salary memo. It will say something to the effect of associate salaries will begin at 190. What they a...
