One week ago we reported on an unknown number of layoffs at Sonnenschein. Today we get word that the firm, whose name is German for “sunshine”, has let go of 10 income partners and as many as 20 other attorneys. No details yet on severance packages.
The cuts came mostly in the real estate and corporate practice areas, which have been particularly hard hit by the economic downturn.
Sonnenschein is an international law firm headquartered in Chicago with 13 offices and 800 attorneys around the world.
