Mayer Brown cuts 75 US jobs in new round of layoffs
Mayer Brown has laid off 28 associates and counsel and 47 members of staff from its US offices, reports The Am Law Daily. This is the firm's third round of job cuts in around 18 months. The firm let go of 33 associates and counsel in November 2008 and laid off 45 more lawyers last April. The announcement was contained in an internal memo, which states: "Although most of our practices are performing well, overall demand for legal services has not recovered fully, and in today's tight legal job market, voluntary lawyer departures have been significantly lower than our normal levels.
