Baker & McKenzie, which replaced Skadden atop the AM Law 100 with 2009 revenue of $2.11 billion, has formally parted ways with 11 of its 12 re-deferred associates from the class of 2009.

The New York associates were re-deferred by the firm back in September with a potential June start date. Now, Above the Law is reporting that word has come down from the firm’s brass that their services won’t be needed.

In a statement to the Web site, the firm said that “unfortunately the work required for these individuals has not materialized to a sufficient degree,” while also pointing out that more than 30 deferred associates from the firm’s 2009 class are now working in North America.


Baker & McKenzie was founded in 1949 and has more than 3,900 lawyers in 67 offices worldwide.
