Orrick lays off executives

HR, knowledge management officers eliminated

Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe has laid off two executives in attempts to rein in costs.

On Thursday, Orrick Chairman Mitch Zuklie told Thomson Reuters that the San Francisco-based firm eliminated the positions of its human resource officer and knowledge management officer. Zuklie, who became chairman in March, said, “a thinner, more nimble management team is an objective of mine.” He added that the changes are not “a reaction to anything in the past. It’s very much a forward-looking (initiative).”
