Incisive Media, publishers of various business-to-business magazines such as IT Week, Personal Computer World, and as relates to the legal profession, The American Lawyer and The National Law Journal, has announced layoffs.
From a press release:
As has been reported in trade outlets, Incisive Media eliminated 42 positions last week. These layoffs were distributed across positions in both business and news departments in the entire company’s North American units, which includes 31 legal and real estate publications, as well as our events group.
As you know, these are extremely difficult economic times for all media organizations and we deeply regret the loss of many valuable employees who have contributed much to Incisive. Unfortunately, every media company is facing issues similar to ours, as digital publishing rewrites the rules and economics of our business.
