Last week we reported on rumors that Dewey & LeBoeuf would decrease its workforce.

Legal industry rumors seem to be pretty reliable!

The firm has carried out a detailed assessment of its administrative staffing needs. The firm’s management has come to the difficult but necessary conclusion that we need to eliminate a significant number of administrative staff positions in offices around the world. While reductions in force are regrettable, we are committed to taking the steps necessary to address the challenges of the current business climate and to ensure our continued success.


The firm is cutting 100 support staff in the US today. It has also announced a redundancy consultation in the UK, with 15 lawyers and 15 administrative staff targeted.
