Legal bloggers have been thrilled to comment on this quote from Covington & Burling’s recently-published Diversity Update:

Our balanced mix of practices; our longstanding, deep and broad client relationships; and our careful management have mitigated some of the worst impacts of the economy to date. We have not seen a need for any cutbacks in the size of our legal and non-legal staff. We have not frozen salaries. We have paid bonuses. We will welcome our incoming class for 2009 at the usual time this fall, and we will offer a full summer program.

Can you feel the air of quiet superiority? I guarantee you, in a month I’ll be linking back to this post from a story about layoffs at Covington & Burling. I wonder what The Cryptkeeper thinks?


I take that back. I hope things go well for everyone at Covington.

Covington & Burling LLP is an international law firm with offices in Beijing, Brussels, London, New York, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, San Diego, and Washington, DC. It consistently ranks among the top 20 on The American Lawyer’s prestigious “A-List.”
