“[T]echnology has become more advanced and has streamlined the way we all work. While there are many benefits to this, it also presents some challenges to our historic staffing models,” said a memo to employees first posted on Above the Law.
Wilson has not yet reported its 2009 financial results.
The memo assured employees that the firm sees “positive signs” in the economy.
“Although this was a difficult decision, we would like to assure everyone that the firm continues to be extremely well positioned for growth and future success,” it said.
Wilson is only one of two AmLaw 100 firms to publicly conduct layoffs so far in 2010. Last week, Seyfarth Shaw cut 20 staff and 20 attorneys.
Last January, Wilson laid off 45 attorneys and 68 staff.
