DLA Piper is laying off 80 associates and about 100 staffers in its U.S. offices. The announcement, made to attorneys and employees on Thursday, followed the firm's decision earlier in the week to let go of 30 attorneys and 110 staffers in its U.K. offices. The downsizing will affect the New York office the most, where the firm will trim 16 associates. It is laying off 12 associates in Chicago, with the other reductions primarily on the West Coast.
