Mayer Brown has become the latest to announce a redundancy programme, with the US firm planning to cut around 20 lawyers and staff from its London office.
The news follows this week’s hire of Mayer Brown finance partner Nicola Marley by Australian firm Minter Ellison (2 May 2012).
A spokesperson for Mayer Brown said in a statement: “We continue to look carefully at our business to ensure that we have as strong a platform as possible on which to build. We have made the difficult decision that a small reduction in headcount is necessary which may result in less than 20 people from the London office leaving the firm. This includes a small number of fee earners along with support staff. All those potentially impacted by this decision have been notified and will be provided with support and assistance at this time.”
