Earlier this week we told you that Fenwick & West paid several of its incoming associates to find work elsewhere. Today we have the numbers for this year’s crop of summer associates and like many other firms, the numbers aren’t pretty. The firm made offers to 17 of its 36 summer associates. The remaining 19 received a letter explaining that the rejections were due to tough economic times.
Fenwick & West LLP is a full service law firm focusing on technology and life sciences clients. It employs approximately 300 attorneys in 4 offices.
