Amidst a lull in law firm layoffs in recent days, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges has confirmed that it laid off a small number of employees because of economic conditions.
"A handful of people have been let go for lack of work," partner John Quinn of the renowned business litigation firm tells Above the Law.
However, this amounts to "good news" in the current market for legal services, the law blog writes. "Whatever the official number of layoffs, it does appear that Quinn has kept the amount of cuts down as compared to other firms headquartered on the west coast."
