Layoff Watch ’10: Grant Thornton January Edition

We’ve confirmed that an all-personnel call went out at Grant Thornton today warning everyone at the firm about upcoming layoffs.
One of our sources told us that the audit practice leader stated that it would primarily be cuts at the senior manager and partner level and that they are to take place “immediately”. Our source indicated that non-client serving personnel would also be affected.
Another source told us that there would be restructuring at the partner level which could be coming down from the new senior leadership team that the firm announced yesterday.
We are still trying to obtain details about the timing and number of professionals that may be affected. A Grant Thornton spokesperson has yet to return our email seeking comment. If you’ve got more details to share about the call discuss below or if you prefer to send us the details, get in touch.
