Only a few days after Howrey slashed 32 support staffers from its U.S. payroll, DLA Piper has followed up with layoffs of its own. The firm confirmed to Above the Law on Friday that it had trimmed an undisclosed number of staffers from its offices in 26 U.S. cities. (ATL reports that the layoffs include, but are not limited to, DLA’s Baltimore and Sacramento offices.)
“It is important for us at DLA Piper to ensure that our resources, including support staff, are right-sized in order for us to maximize the performance of our firm,” said a statement by DLA chief operating officer and director of U.S. operations Bob Bratt. “We believe we have an optimal level of support staff to assist our lawyers in delivering the world-class legal services for which our clients rely on us.”
