Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney confirmed last week that it has been in the process of staff cuts. Firm Chief Executive Officer Thomas L. VanKirk said he expects the number of legal secretaries and other administrative staff affected will be more than 15 but less than 25, or less than 2.5 percent of the firm's workforce. VanKirk said that the cuts were not layoffs, but that the positions were being eliminated to bring the firm more in line with its goal of a 3-1 lawyer-to-secretary ratio.
