Quinn Emanuel

Summary: Signing bonuses for law clerks have remained stagnant for years, but Quinn Emanuel has taken the step of increasing their signing bonus to attract law clerks. The National Law Journal reports.

Raising the signing bonus for law clerks from $50,000 to $75,000 clearly shows how badly Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan wants them to join their firm. Quinn Emanuel sent a letter to federal appeals court clerks announcing the increase in signing bonuses. The letter states, “Starting this year, we have increased our signing bonus for law clerks to $75,000,” according to The National Law Journal. Most clerkship bonuses haven’t changed since the recession, but this may be a sign that other law firms will follow suit.

Quinn All but Kills Summer Associate Program

The National Association for Law Placement reported that in 2015 the high for federal circuit clerks was $75,000 and the low was $2,500. The average from the 200 law firms that reported was $25,000. For district court clerks, the high was $60,000 with a low of $2,500 and a median of $20,000.

The recession caused firms to cut their associate numbers so now they are finding that they have very few third- to fifth-year associates. Law firms are now forced to fight over a smaller class of associates to get their work done. A bonus increase doesn’t come as a big surprise as firms try to remain competitive to attract the best associates.
