From LawCrossing.com:

Legal blog Above the Law is reporting that Gunderson Dettmer has laid off a number of junior associates.


While the firm has yet to respond to requests for comments, sources say that half the first-year class has been shown the door, as well as a number of more senior attorneys.

An Above the Law tipster says they were sold on the firm as being smaller, and more caring, and now find it hard to believe they are already looking for new jobs having only been at the firm for a couple of months.

Gunderson Dettmer was founded over 10 years ago and, according to their website, “has become the nation’s leading business law firm for entrepreneurs, emerging growth companies and venture capitalists.”
