Last month, Moore Van Allen laid off 20 staffers. This month, the bell tolls for attorneys.
Associates and partners have confirmed that 20 attorneys we laid off from MvA on Wednesday.
Is there going to be a Charlotte “legal market” still standing in 2009?
We reported last month that Dewey LeBoeuf closed their entire Charlotte office, displacing 11 attorneys.
All of these hits to the Charlotte market make sense, since we no longer have a banking industry or, you know, money. But still, right now Charlotte looks like Sherman just came into town.
… Maybe there will be some Reconstruction work that Charlotte based attorneys can pick up?
Update (12:00): This should probably go without saying, but we now also have reports that MvA has canceled its 2009 summer program.
