  • The number of Clifford Chance employees who lost their jobs was actually significantly higher than the headline figure suggests, as there were still significant numbers of new staff recruited during the period.

  • Turnover fell 5% and (at least) 12% of employees lost their jobs.
    Not only did the partners not allow a drop in their profits to protect their employees' jobs, they actually reduced staff numbers so much as to increase total profits despite the turnover fall.
    The only word to describe that is DESPICABLE. Such behavious should be illegal.

    It seems that partners at City law firms are happy with receiving far less in return.

  • Law firms will always screw their staff.
    It's always been that way. Partners are in it for the money.
    An assistant solicitor's job is only as good as the money it brings in.
    Solicitors have always been, and will always be, highly expendable.
    Why do people act so surprised when partners shed staff.

  • Not every firm shares the ethos of a magic circle firm.
    What I find strange, is that while people, in large part for this sort of reason, choose not to apply to the bigger and more self-interested firms, others often see that as a lack of short and long-term ambition. Quite ironic don't you think?
