A 200-attorney Boston law firm has laid off 8 percent of its workforce, due to the difficult economy.
"General economic conditions ... have affected our clients and we anticipate that they may affect our work levels this year," the memo reads, in part. "We currently have too many lawyers and staff in certain areas."
Boston's Foley Hoag announced a total of 32 attorney and staff layoffs last week.
