Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton announced Monday it was furloughing 33 of its 823 staff members, making it the latest law firm to react to the coronavirus pandemic with slashes to its workforce.

The furloughs apply to team members who cannot do their jobs remotely, including receptionists, support services and file center employees, the international law firm said in a statement. The affected staff members had been on payroll during the last four weeks when the firm transitioned to working from home. The employees were told they could expect to return to work in 60 to 90 days.
