Sheppard Mullin has joined several other law firms in making a combination of compensation and staffing decisions amid the ongoing and uncertain COVID-19 climate.

The firm confirmed Tuesday evening reports that it laid off 22 of the 44 staff it had previously furloughed, offering the remaining 22 the option to take a voluntary buyout. It also announced to lawyers and staff in a series of town halls Tuesday that it would roll back any remaining pay cuts and pay back what those receiving percentage-based cuts did not receive from April through September.
