Holland & Knight is laying off 70 legal secretaries, about 5 percent of its support staff.
The move comes after a small decline in the firm’s gross revenue last year, the Daily Business Review reports. Firm spokeswoman Susan Bass told the publication the layoffs were a result of a review of the firm’s books.
"It was just too many people," she said. "We had some redundancies and inefficiencies."
