Tite & Lewis has become the latest accountancy-tied law firm to succumb to economic pressures by enforcing a swathe of redundancies
Staff at the Ernst & Young-tied firm learned this week that 12 assistant lawyers and six support staff have been made redundant, while three partners will be "withdrawing from the firm". As The Lawyer revealed last week, KPMG-tied law firm KLegal has axed another six partners from its London office, after it announced that 20 fee-earners and 42 support staff were to be cut. Osborne Clarke has also axed four London corporate partners, four associates and a clutch of support staff, according to managing partner Leslie Perrin. A spokesperson for Tite & Lewis said that no further details will be disclosed "out of respect to the individuals affected" by the cutbacks.
