Jenner & Block, following in the footsteps of other firms in town, recently notified some partners that they should prepare to leave the firm. The Chicago-based firm is asking about 10 partners, both equity and nonequity, to exit, with the bulk of those affected currently working out of the firm's biggest office in Chicago. No particular practice area is more affected than others, and associates and legal staff aren't affected by the layoffs, the firm said.
