Goodwin Procter Says So Long To Second Year Associates View Count: 29

21 second-year associates from Goodwin Procter’s Business Law practice group have been laid off. Most of the layoffs came out of their Boston Office.

The firm sent out a memo to employees stating that actions they had taken in response to the “slow economic recovery” were not enough and they claimed that the firm was at “overcapacity” in regards to their current workload.

The firm had already cut incoming classes and, according to the memo, they hoped that the market would pick up as this class transitioned from first years to second years.

According to reports, men and women were crying in the halls in response to the news.
