DykemaThis week, big law firm layoffs are back.

Severance packages were offered. The layoffs were blamed on the economy.

UPDATE

The following statement is from firm chairman Rex Schlaybaugh:

Given the current market conditions, which have affected virtually every industry across the nation, we made the difficult decision to reduce our lawyer ranks by 17 and our staff population by 30 nationally. The firm has provided those who are leaving with severance benefits during this difficult time. This reduction is based on the economic climate. Dykema has a strong and conservative balance sheet, but it is essential that we protect and maintain that strength. The firms that are most effectively managed during tough times will not only survive but will emerge stronger.
