THREE partners are among the casualties of a job cutting programme announced by City firm Boodle Hatfield.The step was taken after a vote among its equity partners - one of whom is a victim of the job losses.But managing Partner Edward Sutherland insists the departure of the three partners, along with six other fee earners, is amicable."It is a very sad time, but we feel it was the right decision," he says.The job losses follow a review of the firm's business operations at its offices in the City and Southampton.The firm is not naming the partners, who are yet to leave, claiming it would be insensitive to identify them.They are from the London corporate and litigation department and Southampton's property department.Sutherland, the firm's new managing partner, puts the job losses down to the "specialisation of legal work today" which made "a number of positions in a number of departments" redundant.The firm has recently opened up a new office in Oxford headed by partner Sue Laing which will concentrate on client and property work.Former managing partner Tim Manning has returned to fee-earning work in the property department.
