Cooley Godward Kronish has laid off 58 staffers, most of them secretaries.

Cooley chief operating officer Mark Pitchford told the Recorder that the layoffs amount to about 5 percent to 6 percent of the firm’s staff. They follow January cuts of 52 lawyers and 62 staffers.

"This is not being driven by the year-end performance or the need to cut x dollars of the 2009 budget," Pitchford told the publication. "This is recognition that we were overstaffed in certain areas."
