Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney eliminated between 25 and 30 administrative positions yesterday.
The firm cut 25 administrative positions in November.
The firm said the latest cuts were based on the economy and not performance; but performance-based layoffs may be on the way.
That process began shortly before the firm’s fiscal-year end of January 31st and goes into March.
Buchanan Ingersoll has seen a number of high-level departures since 2007, and has said it won’t fill those spots simply to increase attorney headcount.
