O'Melveny moves ahead with cost-cutting measures

The moves come as O'Melveny's profits per partner have remained at about $1.6 million, on average, during 2006 and 2007, mostly due to a drop in large private equity deals, and as many other firms, including Katten Muchin Rosenman, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal and Clifford Chance, have laid off associates and staff in recent weeks.
