Ruden McClosky, a Florida-based law firm, slashed 16 staff members in line with the its reorganization plan to cut expenses, increase revenue and standardize the three-to-one lawyer-to-secretary ratio. The layoff did not include lawyers or paralegals. The affected workers were basically from the administrative and support division, including the longtime library director and several secretaries who have been with the firm for more than 20 years. The axed employees were generally concentrated in the Fort Lauderdale office, which removed 13 of its staff members. The West Palm Beach office slashed two and Orlando eliminated one.

Ruden’s co-managing partner, Carl Schuster, explained that the firm is currently focusing on increasing its profitability across the Florida market. “Ruden McClosky continues to implement changes that are in line with today’s law firm standards for best practices, which include maximizing efficiencies while enhancing the firm’s technological capabilities.”

Ruden McClosky has been greatly affected by the recent economic recession and real estate clash. As a result, the firm experienced partner defections, employed mass layoffs and closure of some of its offices. New co-partner elect Michael Kru said that the firm is now poised to grow and is looking to hire new associates. Kru also assured that there are no layoffs slated in the coming months after the recent downsizing.
