Vinson & Elkins remembers the staff at bonus time

January 6, 2011 Vinson & Elkins did not forget their legal support staff when handing out end-of-year bonuses in December, and now the firm has announced that there will be an extra staff bonus paid by management.

Other firms have not been so generous, with Jones Day announcing that their staff would not be getting bonuses at all.

Some have reported that the largesse will also be reflected in the bonuses for associates – to be awarded later this month - which are expected to be set above the standard established by Cravath Swaine & Moore.
