Alvin Davis, managing partner of Squire Sanders‘ Miami office, has told the National Law Journal that Miami employees laid off at the firm include “a couple runners, some staffers and a few people in accounting.”

A long-time administrative assistant was also laid off, according to sources within the firm.

Davis said he did not know if there were layoffs firmwide. Drez Jennings, spokesperson for the firm, did not return calls for comment, and lawyers there said the firm had a strict lockdown on any information about layoffs.


Squire Sanders has 850 lawyers in 32 offices worldwide.

But while Davis said no lawyers were laid off, sources inside the firm said that lawyers indeed had been laid off, but were still working at the firm until they find jobs elsewhere.

In November, 30 associates and paralegals were asked to leave the firm, including three associates from the Phoenix office.
