Anita Project: RIP
Thought I'd give you an update: the Anita project has officially ended. Constantine and Kirkland pulled about 10 people from the Park Ave space on the last day to work on other projects at the firm offices, and Anita came to axe the rest of us without notice. It was a good run, and despite the drama early on, it worked out pretty well for many of the temp attorneys who survived the periodic layoffs. Several contract attorneys received positions with Constantine, and two particularly well-qualified attorneys even received associate positions with Kirkland & Ellis. That said, many who showed up every day for the last year and a half are now unemployed, and the news still managed to surprise.
