About 75 support staffers at O’Melveny & Myers learned on Monday that the law firm is eliminating their jobs.
In a statement provided to the ABA Journal, O’Melveny chief operating officer George Demos says the layoffs “reflect technology-driven efficiencies and practice model changes.” As part of the restructuring, the firm will transfer some work to an outsourcing firm that handles office-services functions.
