Blank Rome cuts 27 lawyers and 52 staffers

March 13, 2009 Philadelphia-based Blank Rome, LLP announced on Thursday that it had laid off 27 lawyers and 52 staff in the US following an ongoing decline in business.

The start date of Blank Rome's entry-level lawyers will be delayed to at least January of 2010.

Blank Rome spokesman Topper Ray said: "Global economic conditions continue to affect business in all sectors of the economy. The firm's leadership recently engaged in a comprehensive review of our staffing levels. This review led us to conclude, regrettably, that further adjustments to our associate and staff complements were necessary."
