Brobeck announced last month that it would pay associates in the business and technology group a lump sum equal to their base pay through April 15 if they left the firm. The so-called “separation incentive program” was open to associates who were on target to bill less than 1,300 hours by the end of the year. The deadline for applying for the package was Friday.
