We weren’t sure we’d do a follow-up to yesterday’s post on the firm-wide meeting at Jenner & Block. But since there was a fair amount of speculation in the comments, as well as requests for updates, we thought we’d close the loop.
Based on what we’ve heard from our own sources at the firm, we can confirm the accuracy of this comment:
The conference room was packed- five deep along the walls. Everyone was there right on time. Levy introduces herself. Tells us not to worry about the issues on wall st- they will not adversely affect Jenner’s bottom line. Jenner is having a great year and bonus are expected to be as good or better than last year. Litigation is doing great. Keep up the good work. blah, blah. No merger, or layoffs, no LA office, no moving to Chile. All is good.
Another source described the meeting as follows:
It was basically a hand-holding pep talk — a “don’t worry that there will be an all-associates meeting to announce layoffs” meeting.
When your firm schedules a firm-wide or all-associates meeting, do feel free to drop us a line. Thanks.
