It's beginning to seem as though it would be more newsworthy to find a firm that isn't laying off attorneys, whether openly or by stealth. On Thursday, it was Proskauer's turn. The firm is parting ways with 25 administrative staff and 35 associates, according to a statement. Proskauer said the layoffs are due to both the economic crisis and the "unprecedented reduction in our historical lawyer attrition rate."
