Jones Day, this year’s No. 4 ranked law firm in the AM Law 200, has laid off staff at its Dallas and Los Angeles offices. A partner at the firm’s Washington D.C. office confirmed the news to the ABA Journal Thursday.

According to a tip provided JD Journal yesterday, 17 staffers in Dallas were axed last week and an additional 15 were dropped from the firm’s Los Angeles office Tuesday. Washington D.C. partner Joe Sims declined to reveal the exact number of layoffs to the ABA Journal, but indicated those numbers were within range.

Jones Day had revenue of $1.57 billion in 2009 to place in the top-5 of the AM Law 200. Sims told the ABA Journal the layoffs were not economically-driven, “but simply rightsizing to be more effective.”
