Chicago-based Mayer Brown has announced it is cutting 45 attorneys and 90 administrative staffers across its U.S. offices. In a statement released by the firm Thursday, chairman James Holzhauer blamed the reductions on the prolonged downturn in the global economy. Last November the firm let go of 33 attorneys from its global network; in March, the firm confirmed that up to 55 legal and staff jobs were under threat in London.
