85 More Jobs To Go At UK’s Addleshaws

The Lawyer (UK) reported yesterday that..

UK firm Addleshaw Goddard has launched a firm-wide restructuring, which the Lawyer reports is expected to see 85 non fee-earners lose their jobs and fee-earners have their work reduced hours and salaries cut.

The Lawyer writes:

The consultation with 85 members of support staff, which was launched last week, will affect all offices and business services teams. It is expected that broadly equal numbers of secretarial and business services staff will lose their jobs.

This is the third round of job cuts the firm has made in the last year, following the exit of 19 partners earlier this year (21 January) and 16 redundancies, including two fee-earners, last summer (13 October 2008).
