Jones Day lays off support staff in LA and Dallas

June 17, 2010 Jones Day has laid off an unspecified number of support staffers in its Los Angeles and Dallas offices. About two thirds of those laid off are secretarial workers, and the remainder perform other support tasks.

According to Joe Sims, a Washington DC partner, “These [layoffs] were not performance or economic driven but simply rightsizing to be more effective.” He added that the firm prefers to trim staff through attrition or careful hiring and the layoffs were a “last-resort alternative.”
