A&O finalises details of redundancy packages
Nightmare in Europe
Being an affected non-London based A&O lawyer, I cannot help finding some of the comments (and the article itself) painful and almost cynical to read. The way management and HR handled the process in my jurisdiction was most disgraceful, humiliating and incompetent in every bizarre detail. It will leave scorched earth for years to come, with A&O anyway being at best a third tier player in my jurisdiction. A lot of my friends who are not affected will keep calm during this miserable 2009, but will change ship immediately when the market comes back. The same applies - believe it or not - to some quality partners. The whole process will cost A&O much more in the future. Leading law firms will clearly celebrate - if they could be bothered to look behind.
