Today Am Law 100 firm Nixon Peabody announced the layoffs of 56 attorneys and staff.
Prudent management of our business requires that we downsize our associate, legal support, and administrative ranks, with the result that 20 attorneys will be leaving the firm, and we will be reducing our staff by 36 people through a combination of staff reductions and the
creation of new positions.
It is unknown if any of the 20 attorneys are from the group of 90 ex-Thelen lawyers that Nixon Peabody acquired last year.
Nixon Peabody LLP is one of the largest multi-practice law firms in the US, with offices in seventeen cities in the United States and one in London, and more than seven hundred attorneys in twenty-five major practice areas.
