About 10 associates are being let go at Howrey as the year draws to a close.
However, these aren't layoffs but "an outplacement of some associates based on performance issues," an unnamed law firm spokesperson tells Above the Law.
The firm is doing well financially, and, unlike many of its competitors, is not rescinding or delaying offers to incoming first-year associates, the spokesperson states.
