Clydes makes eight redundant following consultation

Clyde & Co has made eight support staff redundant following a consultation in the wake of 2011 merger with legacy Barlow Lyde & Gilbert (BLG).

Clydes said in January that there would be a consultation that would affect fewer than ten staff with the changes affecting the London base (30 January 2013).

The firm has been in an ongoing reveiw of its back office functions following the tie-up with BLG (3 June 2011).

The newss follows a spate of redundancy consultations, with Bevan Brittan and Trowers & Hamlins both on consultations. At Bevan Brittan three lawyers and six support staff are affected (23 May 2013), while at Trowers & Hamlins seven position have been cut following a review (22 May 2013).

Last week Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) announced plans to make a raft of redundancies affecting nearly 100 lawyers and staff at the firm (13 May 2013).
