Trowers & Hamlins held a second round of redundancies this week, with four jobs in the firm’s UK offices affected.

The layoffs are in the firm’s real estate team; three in the Manchester plot sales team, and one job will be cut in Exeter.

London is currently unaffected by the cutbacks.


The news comes after the firm revealed it was to scale back its headcount in the Middle East, with seven lawyers set to lose their jobs.

Dubai has taken the biggest hit in the cuts, with five fee earners laid off, while the firm’s offices in Riyadh and Muscat have each lost one lawyer. The bulk of the cuts affected the firm’s project finance practice.

The move made Trowers the first law firm to officially make redundancies in the Middle East as a result of the global economic meltdown.
