Columbus, Ohio’s Bricker & Eckler has eliminated 28 positions, including nine lawyers.
“We’re seeing a decline in the work of our clients, and that’s affecting us as well,” said Rich Sampson, managing partner.
The firm is looking at other money-saving endeavors, including scaling back its summer clerkship program for law students.
Bricker & Eckler LLP, known more commonly as Bricker, is a law firm with approximately 160 attorneys in 3 offices in Ohio. Its first office was founded in Columbus, Ohio in 1944 by John W. Bricker, a three-term Ohio governor, two-term US Senator from Ohio, and former candidate for vice president of the United States.
The firm has since branched out to offices in Cleveland and Cincinnati.
