On Monday we reported that Alston Bird was deferring its deferrals again, indefinitely. Arent Fox has taken a different approach. Rather than indefinitely extend deferrals, the firm has chosen to revoke the offers of several new associates. Those whose offers have been revoked have been paid $20,000 in compensation.
Arent Fox is a Washington, DC, based firm with three offices and 350 attorneys. It has a strong lobbying practice along with a broad array of practice groups.
