Ran across this looking for links. Seems barry’s cash input of $1,337,446.12 wasn’t enough to salvage 38 workers’ jobs – 12 attorneys, 26 staff – in Seattle, Menlo Park, Bellevue, San Francisco, and Chicago.

ELIE MYSTAL back in April.

The firm provided this statement to Above the Law:

Perkins Coie announced this week that it is downsizing by 12 attorneys and 26 non-attorney staff. While these actions are painful to all concerned, the Firm concluded that such actions were a necessary response to the current, challenging economy. The firm has offered all affected employees an expanded severance package that includes continuation of health care for nine months.
