That's kind of the problem... in hindsight he shouldn't have given such lengthy notice, and I hope no one ever does again at that firm if that's the reason he got a 50% bonus. But at the time he did it, it was a reasonable move.
Associates should more or less always assume firms wlll screw then at any chance. Though I'd think most would want to keep a future client happy.
And yes, OP you should be pissed.
