    Skadden recently laid off staff positions, including legal assistants, staff attorneys, and secretaries. The partners voted on bonuses that set the industry high this past December while the economy was in turmoil. Then, less than one month later, the partners voted to reduce the staff positions. Now, I am sleepless and jobless although I have sent out countless resumes, just so the partners and associates can continue to inflate their already inflated bank accounts. This is corporate greed at its best. Another AIG!! Is this what we consider “thinking big”. If so, I guess I need to find another profession.

    Dear confused and confounded - it's not that difficult to work out. Shape refers to pratice area/ regional coverage. Size just refers to numbers. A change to the shape and size of partnership will therefore lead to an adjustment to both the total number of partners and to the relative weightings between practice areas/ regions.

    it's interesting how Freshfields hasn't distinguished between those who will be equity partners and those who will be salary partners
