In another blow to Chicago's legal market, Bell Boyd & Lloyd on Thursday laid off 10 associates. The announcement comes just two weeks after Katten Muchin Rosenman cut 21 attorneys and Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal dropped 25 associates. Both those law firms have their largest offices in Chicago. As with the other firms, Bell Boyd & Lloyd said the attorney cuts are in response to the slowing economy.
