Baker & McKenzie cuts jobs in Kiev and Moscow

February 26, 2009 Baker & McKenzie has laid off eight staff members in its Kiev office, including three associates. Three associates were also made redundant in Baker's Moscow office.

Baker & McKenzie follows other firms like German rival Beiten Burkhardt, which has trimmed down its Ukraine office, and Linklaters, which has cut its Warsaw headcount by around 10 lawyers recently. Allen & Overy has also announced significant job cuts in Eastern Europe.

Baker still has around 125 lawyers in Moscow and around 75 in Kiev.
