Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman has confirmed online rumors that the firm will be laying off an undisclosed number of attorneys in the near future.

Legal blawg Above the Law quoted a tipster who overheard a cell phone conversation on a train. On the call between Bob Robbins, head of the Corporate and Securities practice, and COO Rick Donaldson, Robbins named 15 to 20 attorneys who would be laid off in four offices by the end of March.

Pillsbury issued this statement:


“It is an unfortunate fact in today’s economy that no business or law firm can rule out adjustments to their overall workforce levels. This includes Pillsbury, and among other cost cutting measures, we will be implementing reductions to assure that our resources are aligned with our business needs. We apologize for the unfortunate manner in which our deliberations about reductions have become public.”

Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP is an international law firm with offices located throughout the US and globally, including key financial centers New York, London, Tokyo and Shanghai.
