Is it true that Cooley just laid off an additional 100+ associates? (In addition to their past loyoffs). Seems wild

Huge cop-out to say the downturn was unexpected. I think it was pretty obvious to most the gravy train in corporate wasn’t going to last forever. I also love the self-serving statement re professional development. They are basically saying they are taking away your job for *your own* benefit. 🙄

Hmm why unexpected? As soon as the central bank started raising interest rates and quantitive tightening on the balance sheet, that was the signal

If anyone here was laid off or knows someone that was laid off, and might be interested in a short/medium-term project to help us write scripts for our training videos please let me know (we're looking for people with experience in tech trans, RE & employment). I can be reached at ian@hotshotlegal.com (if you're not familiar with us, we create short, practical videos to help support/train lawyers). Work from anywhere/chance to use skills in a new way/help others learn.

Litigation paralegal here laid off today. Week before the holiday party. Such fucked up timing.

We are hiring - looking for a senior trial paralegal. Feel free to message me if interested.

Remember how in all the stealth threads over the last few months how aggressively all the Cooley folks fought back about no stealth layoffs happening and everything was going perfectly fine…

Always be reading between the lines with firm communications.

7 YOE, fresh MBA grad in July. I am currently making base 180K a year before taxes (comes about to 9.6K a month after tax). I am aiming for base 200K+ for my next role. The first interview call I’ve gotten is for an Apple hardware PM - full time MBA grad role. Would this meet my salary expectation? Or is it worth it to take the salary cut and work back up?
