Quick pointer to ATL, which reports that layoffs have come to Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. Gibson, which has a fantastically annoying and unintuitive website, is home to about a thousand lawyers and an uncounted (by anyone we know, at least) number of staff. No attorney layoffs have been announced by the firm so far.
Above the law has a brief statement from Gibson and the usual array of cringe-worthy comments. For the broad perspective, we point you toward LawShucks' layoff tracker. Legal Pad extends best wishes to the staffers feeling the ax today.
