Australian law firms retrench

The economic downturn in Australia is clearly biting the legal sector.

A story in today's (28 November) Australian Financial Review - I cannot give you the link because it is behind the pay wall - records that Corrs Chambers Westgarth has retrenched fourteen lawyers to try to fit its business to the new economic landscape. This brings the total number of retrenchments including support staff to something approaching fifty staff.

Last week DLA Phillips Fox confirmed that it had retrenched twenty staff including twelve lawwers at its Sydney and Auckland offices.
