Dechert is laying off 19 lawyers, both associates and of counsel, across the firm’s 11 U.S. offices.
A spokesman told the Am Law Daily that the cuts were “primarily due to a reduction in demand that has affected most, if not all of the legal industry."
Late last year Dechert laid off 72 staff members, representing 12.5 percent of the firm’s administrative staff.
