    Slaughters aren't magic circle, and A&O has announced a major redundancy programme.

    Can I have a job at The Lawyer please?

    don't people think it is only a matter of time before FF and A&O announce formal and wide reaching redundancy programmes?

  • What about New York

    Why aren't the top New York firms also laying off their associates? Consider Cravath, Wachtell, Davis Polk and S&C. None have announced redundancies -- and none will. Just watch.

    For years London has explained its low salaries compared to the Wall Street firms in terms of the more friendly London work hours and other conditions. But when push comes to shove, it's the London firms that are ditching their associates. London firms pay their associates less AND get ride of them when times are tough. Just as the top NY firms pay mandatory bonuses to all associates, they retain their staff -- in good times and bad. That's professionalism. London firms should wake up to their small town attitudes and budget-priced law firms.
