  • Shearman's partnership denied assistants, paralegals and staffers who have worked at Shearman for decades their cost of-living increases (while crying poor) and then granted themselves 4.2% raises.

    This isn't harsh, its just plain greedy, mean and shows a remarkable failure in judgment

  • Why does the media continue to allow Shearman's partnership and that of other firms to perpetuate the myth that there have been no lay-offs of associates?

    Just look at the headcounts in these firms.

    Hiding behind bogus "performance-based" terminations is shameful and unnecessary denigrates associates, who, while they may be fungible and discardable, shouldn't be sacrificed so that partners can maintain an unnecessary and false aura of invincibility.
