The economic downturn's impact on the legal industry has finally caught up with WilmerHale. Firm co-chairman William Perlstein says the firm told its incoming class of associates Monday that the firm would be delaying their start date from the fall of 2009 until 2010. Perlstein says the decision was made to accommodate client concerns. "We thought that staging the entry of new associates until next year would give us a better shot at evening out workloads so that everyone continued to receive good assignments."
