TAMPA – Law firm Holland & Knight laid off 243 people, consisting of
lawyers and support staff, at its 21 offices Thursday.
The number of employees affected in the Tampa office was not immediately clear.
Word of the layoffs created a buzz among local lawyers and legal
blogs. Late Thursday afternoon, the company issued a statement saying
70 lawyer and 173 support positions had been eliminated. The firm did
not say how many layoffs were in Tampa and did not name any affected
Cuts were based on which practice sectors are shrinking and not likely
to recover quickly and which are growing, the statement said.
Employees who were laid off will be offered separation packages, a
continuation of health care benefits and job placement assistance, the
law firm said.
