I don't think the stigma is gone, layoffs are layoffs. This would just confirm the fact that all firms are equally unskilled at predicting their employment needs.


why are skadden and paul weiss in a better position than wilmer?


do you read what you write before you post it?

what are you talking about?! why is wilmer in the same class as cravath and not skadden, pw, or latham? and if you look objectively at what cravath faces in the future (the incredible sizes of their incoming class for less than 100 partners), then you'll see layoffs are inevitable.

but who knows, maybe they'll just do some massive stealth layoffs and screw associates out of severance like they do with cold offers to keep their "prestige"


The concern is always client perception. If the bulk of your clients are having massive layoffs and some are even disappearing, why does anyone think that there will be a stigma if the clients' law firm reduces head count? It's to be expected. If I were a client, I would be concerned about a Firm that hasn't made adjustments, because it is probably overstaffing my matters.
