Seyfarth Shaw announced a headcount reduction of 30 attorneys today.
It’s been an interesting year for Seyfarth, currently ranked 65th on the AmLaw 100.
In July, the firm announced that it would push back the start date of its first year associate class. Last month, the firm picked up a 14-attorney team (nine corporate and finance attorneys, four trusts and estates lawyers and one real estate attorney) from Thelen. Now, layoffs.
Could the firm cap the year with a merger announcement?
