Philly’s Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll has laid off secretarial and administrative staff personnel, the second round of staff cuts at the firm since the summer.
Rumors suggest a significant number of staff cuts at Ballard Spahr, with attorneys being affected as well in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Sources put the number of layoffs between 40 and 65.
For such an ethical firm, you’d think they’d be more forthright about firings.
Ballard Spahr let go 13 support staff around June.
One former Ballard Spahr partner, who wished not to be named, told The Legal Intelligencer the firm missed its budget for 2008.
