Top Law Firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges Announces First Mass Layoffs in 82 Years


Nothing says economic recovery like one of the most profitable and prestigious law firms in  the nation announcing mass layoffs for the first time in 82 years.  Yep, four years after the so-called “recovery” began, things are so good that Weil, Gotshal & Manges has decided to cut 7% of its associates and slash annual compensation for 10% of its partners by hundreds of thousands of dollars.  As the article below notes, there is still massive overcapacity in the legal profession and this announcement is likely to spark a wave of layoffs in the industry.  Not to worry though, Blackstone will continue to place all cash bids on empty homes in Nevada and Arizona.  From the New York Times’ Dealbook:

One of the country’s most prestigious and profitable law firms is laying off a large number of lawyers and support staff, as well as reducing the pay of some of its partners, a surprising move that underscores the financial difficulties facing the legal profession.
