The legal world was abuzz Monday thanks to a story in a British paper that 745-lawyer Simpson Thacher & Bartlett was clandestinely trimming its associate ranks by roughly 30 lawyers through midyear performance reviews. The story solicited a stern response from Simpson Chairman Philip "Pete" Ruegger III, who called the report "complete nonsense." Said Ruegger, "We aren't doing anything differently than any other year and we actually have less attrition this year than last year."
