Black Thursday — 700 Lawyers & Staffers Laid Off


Unfortunately, many of their brethren fellow snakes are still slithering around Former Senator Øbribable's rubberstamp al-Qongress making "our" laws ... more and more overly complex for their own conflicts of interest "professional" self-interests.

Home, Law Firms, Layoffs

'Oh the humanity!'
"Oh the humanity!"
Yesterday, Thursday, February 12th, 2009, six prominent firms fired over 700 attorneys and legal staffers, in what is becoming known as Black Thursday in the legal industry.


T

he same color now darkening practically every other day of the week, too. No doubt Present Øpromisebreaker's firing of all 93 U.S. Attorneys won't have too long to wait for one similarly shady.

DLA Piper; Holland & Knight; Goodwin Procter; Bryan Cave; Epstein Becker & Green; and Dechert all confirmed layoffs yesterday.



And the good news just keeps on coming...

Faegre & Benson also confirmed it initiated layoffs, and Cozen O'Connor let go of staffers on Tuesday.



and coming...

DLA Piper cut 80 associates and 100 staffers from its US offices, plus 30 attorneys and 110 staff in its UK offices.



and coming...

Holland & Knight fired 70 lawyers and 173 support staffers across the firm's 21 offices.



(ditto)

Goodwin Procter laid off 38 associates and 36 staffers.



(gooey caramel ditto)

Bryan Cave laid off 58 attorneys and 76 staffers.



(crunchy milk-chocolaty ditto)

Epstein Becker & Green laid off 23 attorneys and 30 staff members across the firm.



(minty sweet marshmallowy-nougat ditto)

Dechert also confirmed that on Thursday it let go of associates and counsel. In December, the firm laid off 72 staffers in the US and 15 staffers in the UK. It also laid off 13 attorneys in March 2008.



(creamy center fruit juiciness ditto)

Minneapolis-based Faegre & Benson dropped 29 attorneys.



(nuts-covered double fudge sundae ditto with a cherry on top)

Philadelphia's Cozen O'Connor laid off 61 administrative staff and paralegals.



et al., i.e., Esq., ex parte, in camera, et seq., supra....

The only thing that could make all this non-bad news better is that the same thing is happening throughout America's "news"paper industry the Dictatoratic Party's print-propaganda ministries. (Oh, wait... it is! "Oh, the humanity poetic justice!")

Now, one shouldn't consider "good" the misfortune of any fellow human being.

And I wouldn't if a preponderance of such consideration had even the remotest chance of substantially being apposite in some unfrivolous number of these particular cases.
