Morrison & Foerster has postponed its 2009 partner conference, which was due to be held at Broadmoor in June.

The event, which has been put off until next year, was due to feature a range of events including a performance by the firm’s in-house band the Mofonics, which includes San Diego managing partner Mark Danis.

The move comes after the US firm cut 53 associates from its US offices due to the pressures of the economic downturn at the beginning of this year (28 January).

The luxurious Broadmoor Hotel is based in the mountainous Colarado Springs in the US. The firm also cancelled its Broadmoor conference in 2001 following the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the twin towers in New York.
