A JDJournal tipster informs us that Holme Roberts & Owen laid off between 10 and 15 associates in mid-April.
According to the tipster:
Several first year and second year associates were cut. This is less than six months after the firm told us our jobs were safe. Both the Denver Post and the ABA Journal ran stories on the firm’s announcement in November that they wouldn’t lay anyone off. I believe most people got 3 months severance.
Also in April, a tipster informed us that HRO deferred its entire incoming associate class for one year.
Holme Roberts & Owen employs employed approximately 265 attorneys. The only international law firm based in Denver, it has several other offices in the United States and worldwide.
