For the second time this year, Cooley Godward Kronish is axing employees.
Fifty-eight staffers were cut today, although no attorneys were let go, according to an all-hands memo (.pdf) from Cooley COO Mark Pitchford.
“This reduction was conducted to eliminate pockets of staffing overcapacity throughout the firm,” wrote Pitchford.
The firm laid off 52 lawyers and 62 staff in January amidst the deluge of law firm layoffs.
Cooley has had a rough go of it lately, losing a string of partners, including some of its top M&A lawyers.
