Chicago’s Schiff Hardin cut some of its administrative staff this week, as a result of “increased technological efficiencies.”

Schiff Hardin dismissed 11 “unassigned floating secretaries” who were no longer needed at the firm, because there was not work for them to do as a result of “technological advancements,” said spokesperson David Milberg.

The firm, with 432 non-lawyer employees following the reduction, has about three to four lawyers assigned to each secretary.


Schiff Hardin, which notified all employees of the cuts today, said the economic downturn didn’t play a role in the workforce reduction.

Schiff Hardin has more than 400 attorneys practicing out of seven offices nationwide.
