DLA Piper cuts six lawyers in Hong Kong

February 26, 2013 DLA Piper has made six lawyers redundant in its China equity capital markets team in Hong Kong. Reports say that the fee-earners were laid off at the end of last year along with a small numer of support staff.

There was no formal redundancy consultation, since Hong Kong law does not require the conduct of such a process.

The reports say that the six were awarded the statutory minimum redundancy package: two-thirds of the last full month’s wages, or HK$15,000 (£1,300), whichever is less, for every year of employment.
