Biglaw Firm Pushing Out Senior Associates
Above the Law reports that Cahill Gordon sources say that the overwhelming majority of senior litigation associates in a particular class are being asked to leave the firm before they’ve had the chance to go up for partnership.
Senior editor Kathryn Rubino explains:
“Multiple sources report the associates were told they weren’t partner or counsel material, given only a portion of their bonus and told they had six months to get out of Dodge. And even though pushing out these associates is being framed as connected to their inability to make the leap to the next level, sources say most of them weren’t even able to hear any reviews of their work.”
