Baker & McKenzie’s London office has launched a redundancy consultation targeting up to 30 lawyers and 55 staffers.
The review begins at the end of the month. Trainees will not be affected.
In January, the London office laid off up to 20 legal staff.
The London office is freezing salaries for 2009, and does not anticipate paying an all-staff bonus.
Baker & McKenzie was founded in Chicago in 1949 by Russell Baker and John McKenzie. One of the first law firms to be truly global, it employs more than 3,900 lawyers in more than 70 offices in 38 different countries.
