11 City jobs under threat in Mayer Brown cuts
Mayer Brown and Squire Sanders & Dempsey have become the latest firms to make redundancies as the poor economic climate climate continues to force firms into cost-cutting measures. On Thursday (20 November) Mayer Brown laid off 33 lawyers and support staff. In a statement, the firm said: "We have asked 33 lawyers and some support and administrative staff in our US offices to leave the firm. This reduction does not include lawyers who were asked to leave this year through our performance review process. "Those affected by this decision are good lawyers who have made valuable contributions to the firm. We intend to give them access to outplacement services and other benefits and a substantial period of time to find another job."
