O'Melveny & Myers has reduced its associate and staff headcount amid cost-cutting measures that were announced last week, according to the firm and other sources. In a prepared statement, a firm spokeswoman said there were no plans for "economic layoffs" of associates and that it would be "inaccurate to infer a layoff from performance reviews given to less than 1 percent of our associates and counsel headcount."
