Pinsent Masons announces staff redundancies after merger
Pinsent Masons is set to sack up to 45 staff following its merger with McGrigors.
The redundancy round, which does not affect any fee-earners, was said to have been motivated by the fact that the merger created a duplication of support roles. A spokesman said that "unfortunately, as with any merger, there are a number of duplicate roles within our support teams and as such we've identified a small number of potential redundancies in those areas".
The affected staff were reportedly given just five days to apply for their jobs or for voluntary redundancy.
