Mishcon de Reya has launched a redundancy consultation, but unlike the other 43 firms to have entered redundancy talks to date, the firm would not provide information on the number of staff in consultation.
The firm is currently in the process of carrying out a redundancy review with staff.
A statement from the firm read: “As part of this review some positions have regrettably been identified as ;being ;at ;risk ;of redundancy. Individuals have been informed that their positions are at risk and there will be a consultation process over the next two weeks to minimise the need to confirm redundancies.”
A total of 1,235 jobs are currently under threat in the UK’s largest 200 law firms, the majority of which are in real estate practices.
Among the most recent firms to announce consultations, Dechert has said that up to 15 members of its support staff face losing their jobs.
Travers Smith, meanwhile, has laid off four associates, ;while ;11 associates at Reed Smith are facing redundancy.
