Gunderson Dettmer Stough Villeneuve Franklin & Hachigian laid off at least half of the newest class of associates in its biggest office Monday, the latest in a string of firms to announce associate layoffs. The firm had about 90 associates in its four offices before the layoffs. Partners said the decision was in response to a slowdown in work that would stretch into 2009, according to associates. Most of the first-years had summered at the firm in 2007 and only started in October.
