DLA Piper is laying off 21 associates and 100 staff members from its U.S. offices. The cuts are the second round of layoffs in the law firm's domestic offices this year. In February, it let go of 80 associates and 110 staffers. A firmwide memo on Wednesday announced that its reductions in February were designed to avoid cuts later in the year. "Unfortunately, economic weakness has continued," said the statement by Global Chairman Francis B. Burch Jr., Joint Chief Executive Lee Miller and U.S. Managing Partner J. Terence O'Malley.
