Denton Wilde Sapte has joined the ranks of London firms launching redundancy consultations, with up to 80 jobs at risk across the firm’s London and Milton Keynes offices.
The firm said that up to 40 fee-earners could be laid off, with the remainder coming from the staffing ranks.
The consultation is expected to be completed by the end of February.
Although it is unclear which areas will be affected by the cuts, the firm says tax, competition, technology, media and telecoms, marketing, facilities and accounts will not be affected.
The news comes after Clifford Chance earlier this month became the first Magic Circle firm to announce a formal redundancy program, with all 880 lawyers in London under review. The firm is expecting that roughly 80 fee earners will lose their jobs and will launch a separate review of support staff.
