The Intrepid One™ is there:
After 38 years in operation, the law firm informed 23 attorneys and about 50 staffers last week that it would be closing, and Monday was their last day. The lease on two floors at the One Biscayne Tower building, the firm's home since 1975, expires April 1.So they got two days' notice, three weeks of severance, and no COBRA.
Employees will receive no COBRA health insurance but will receive three weeks of severance pay, firm co-founder Lewis Brown said.
Actually, not even two days:
Attorneys and staff were called last Friday and informed the firm was closing. They were told to pick up their belongings and clean up their files for transfer Monday.But no worries, says Brown:
"We are making sure we ensure all our ethical obligations are met."That's a relief.
