Barack Ferrazzano, a Chicago boutique organization that did just that two several years back (but weeks after Cravath first made its go), is again in the activity with what we’ll refer to as a “kind of, sort of” Milbank match. Sources report that efficient July 1, the organization will be rising every associate’s income by $10,000.

But cash is cash, and who’s definitely complaining? Congratulations to all associates at the organization!
