As reported in the law blog Above The Law The British law firm of Mishcon de Raya decided to pull back from the Big Apple expansion they began in 2010. London-based Mischon de Reya, which opened a New York office in 2010, is poised to halve the size of its partnership in the Big Apple.  The decision, which comes after a review by Mishcon of its business in the city, will see the number of partners drop from six to three. Overall lawyer head count in the office—the British firm’s only outpost in the U.S.—has also fallen by three to 12.

I'm not saying its the Brexit, but on the heels of the DLA Piper decision to cut another 180 UK based staff jobs, does it really matter?  Still a tough end to 2016 for law firms in the UK.
