Someone who would otherwise choose Cravath probably isn't going to let a 20% bonus increase sway them, but it can and should sway people on the margins. Even if you plan to go work 1800 hours, it's nice to know that the firm will reward the effort if you do get unusually busy one year. Kudos to Cadwalader - associates should start applying there in Droves!
Here here! Finally, there's a big law firm on the scene that actually cares about associates.
It's the little things that make Cadwalader truly shine as a bastion of associate compassion. Why, I hear many of their partners frequently go out of their way to communicate at high volumes at associates just in case any are hard of hearing!
