Setting new records for layoffs, rumor has it that Latham & Watkins has let go of 190 associates and 250 staff members. However, they are offering an unheard-of severance package that includes six months’ salary and medical coverage, capped at $100,000. The cuts are 12 percent of the firm’s associates and 10 percent of paralegal and other staff. New York and Los Angeles offices were hit the hardest.
