Kilpatrick Stockton announced late Tuesday that it had laid off 24 associates and counsel spread across all of its U.S. offices. "These actions are driven by the current economic downturn," said the firm's co-managing partner in a statement. She said each lawyer "will receive a competitive and generous severance package." The announcement follows word from Kilpatrick last week that first-year lawyers hired for this fall will not start until April 2010.
