Connecticut’s Wiggin and Dana this week laid off 14 attorneys and 14 staff.

In January, we reported that the worsening economy had affected Wiggin and Dana in the same way that it has challenged all businesses, including our clients and other prominent law firms. We announced then that the firm had eliminated 14 administrative staff and paralegal positions. As part of our ongoing review of operating expenses and in connection with our continuing efforts to reduce costs across-the-board, we have further concluded that a reduction in our attorney ranks is necessary. After careful consideration and with great reluctance, we have decided to reduce our attorney ranks by 14. These reductions took effect today, and we have met with each of the 14 attorneys to inform them of our decision.

What’s up with the number 14? Is it numerologically significant? Will it protect the firm from the angry spirits of laid off associates?
