Two-thirds of Nixon Peabody's incoming associate class scheduled to start in January won't begin working until Feb. 8 or later. Nixon Peabody's hiring partner informed the firm's new lawyers on Monday that while one-third of the class would start after the holidays, another two-thirds would be phased in quarterly throughout 2010. "The remaining associates will continue to be deferred and we hope will join the firm as our client needs evolve," Allison McClain said in a statement to The Am Law Daily.
