Herbert Geer refused to comment when contacted by Lawyers Weekly about specific rumours that the firm had made corporate lawyers from their Brisbane and Melbourne offices redundant.
However, a spokesperson for Herbert Geer said the firm had made "two or three" people redundant and that "we, as do all businesses, have redundancies from time to time".
The spokesperson added that there was no plan for general redundancies at the firm.
Herbert Greer recently recruited Paul Noonan, partner from Dibbs Abbott Stillman, to the Melbourne office and told Lawyers Weekly that it anticipated further new partner announcements shortly.
