Taylor Wessing has entered redundancy consultations with four lawyers and two secretaries in its real estate department.
A spokesperson for the firm said: "We will over the next two weeks be discussing the process with them and trying to identify alternatives to redundancy before we reach a point of making final decisions”.

The firm would not comment further until after the consultation process was completed.
