Pillsbury Winthrop lays off 35 staff
Pillsbury Winthrop is set to lay off 35 staffers. Chief operating officer Rick Donaldson said that the layoffs were a normal part of optimization of the law firm and the firm would follow proper procedures in the matter.
Pillsbury Winthrop has 14 offices worldwide in addition to an operations centre at Nashville, and it remains unclear where the cuts will be made. Donaldson said only that “The departures affect approximately 35 staff in various offices, departments and sections.”
Donaldson went on to say: “We will be providing these individuals with severance pay, health benefits and career transition services … We wish them well in future endeavors.”
