Meh. At least Weil isn't laying off first years.
Oh that's good, wonder if associates got laid off on performance, by practice area, or whether it was random. I guess an explicit layoff would be much easier to explain than a stealth layoff, so maybe they did those people a favor.
Trying to figure out if potential layoffs are even something we should be thinking about right now in the bidding process or whether we should only think about it if we get more than one offer.
You'd be hard pressed to find a firm that hasn't laid people off ITE. Whether Weil's recent doing so makes them worse than other firms I don't know (though I lean towards it not making them worse). At this point the name of the game is getting interviews and then offers.
