Goodwin Procter has announced plans to cut attorneys, paralegals and other business professionals across “multiple U.S. offices” due to macro-economic headwinds and a slowdown in demand, according to an internal memo sent to employees Thursday and obtained by The American Lawyer.

The layoffs affected associates and professional track attorneys, as well as paralegals, science advisors and GO! Team members, which is the firm’s global operations team. Overall, that accounts for a 5% reduction in those groups, the memo said. The exact number of attorneys affected, and the specific offices in which the layoffs took place, were not immediately clear.
