The Legal Intelligencer in Philadelphia is reporting that the Philly-based firm is cutting seven associates and seven staffers. Six of the lawyers are in Philly and one is in Washington. One of the staffers is in Baltimore.
As we posted back in January, Saul laid off 12 staffers at the beginning of the year. There were some Baltimore staffers in that group, but no lawyers.
As the AmLaw Daily points out, Saul was one of a group of regional firms the AmLaw folks pointed to in February as likely to benefit from bad economic times. The idea was that clients, sick of high rates at national firms, would move to less expensive, well-respected regional firms.
