Eversheds, a top 10 U.K. law firm, has entered into its fourth redundancy round, which could lead to as many as 117 layoffs. The consultation, announced Thursday, will lay off up to 22 fee earners in the real estate practice in what the firm said was a result of the negative economic climate and long-term decline of the real estate sector. The review will also consider sabbaticals and reduced hours. The firm is set to cut up to 95 secretarial posts.
