ABSTRACT
The article reports that the number of employees at Bullivant Houser Bailey's office in Las Vegas, Nevada will be reduced by half. The number of local attorneys at the office was cut from nine to six at the start of the year but will be further reduced to five with the retirement of Steve Kenyon, chief executive officer of the law firm. The layoffs, retirements and terminations have been partially attributed to the economic crisis.
