CMS Cameron McKenna to cut jobs
CMS Cameron McKenna has announced a review of its UK business that puts 40 UK jobs at risk, including 26 lawyers.
The redundancy consultation is expected to complete within the next 30 days, and will cover roles in the legal, legal support and secretarial departments.
Managing partner Duncan Weston said: "Clearly this is not a decision that we take lightly but we take it in the best interests of delivering sustained, competitive success.
"There are long-term and short-term reasons for the review. In the long-term, we continue to work in an environment where law firms need to ensure that they are the right size and shape to meet the needs of business going forward. Short-term, we need to manage efficiently in what remains a tough market."
