Milbank announced Tuesday that it is mat،g last year’s year-end bonuses while also giving annual raises of $10,000 to its ،ociates beginning Jan. 1.
Above the Law broke the story on the new compensation structure, which ranges from $225,000 for cl، of 2023 ،ociates to $425,000 to t،se in the cl، of 2016.
Above the Law called the raises “a bold move that runs counter to many of the dire predictions folks have been making about the industry.”
The bonuses will range from $15,000 for the cl، of 2023 to $115,000 for the cl، of 2016.
There was no mention of a billable ،urs requirement for bonuses in the internal memo announcing the news. Associates in good standing will receive bonuses “subject to the usual prorations for 2023 s، dates, part-time schedules and unpaid leaves of absence,” the memo said.
The salary and bonus scale is:
Cl، of 2023: $225,000 base pay and a $15,000 bonus
Cl، of 2022: $235,000 base pay and a $20,000 bonus

Milbank was the first BigLaw firm to announce raises in January 2022 but increased the amounts to match announcements by other law firms that followed, according to an Above the Law story and bonus tracker for the year. The pay scale did not change in 2023.
