Mannheimer announces 30 staff redundancies
Mannheimer Swartling has announced plans to lay off around 30 support staff, becoming the first Swedish law firm to announce redundancies since the financial crisis took hold. The Swedish leader has yet to decide which staff members will lose their jobs, or which offices will be affected, but said that no lawyers risk being cut at present. Biorn Riese, Mannheimer chairman and head of M&A, said: "We have had a one-year project to oversee all the firm's support staffing needs in order to become more efficient. We began before the financial crisis took hold, but with the current market situation there is yet another reason."
