Goodwin Procter Announces Family Caregiver Benefit


In an effort to assist baby boomer employees who care for both aging parents and young children (often called “The Sandwich Generation”), Goodwin Procter will offer a 24-hour telephone support center designed to answer questions about caring for the aging, elderly, and the disabled.

The center, staffed by geriatric social workers and registered nurses, will help Goodwin Procter employees navigate the complexities of coordinating disabled and elderly services that include housing, transportation, insurance, nutrition, and nursing care.

The goal is to reduce turnover and improve employee productivity, since the emotional stress of caring for aging parents negatively affects workplace performance.

Corporate Lawyers Abandon Lehman’s London Office
Although there is plenty of work left to do in the Lehman Brothers London office following the investment bank’s September collapse, at least 60 of the team of 80-100 lawyers have departed. At least 40 lawyers have accepted offers from Nomura, the Japanese bank that took over the European division. Twenty of the 60 departing lawyers have taken other opportunities.

PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the administrator of the firm, has been offering lucrative incentives for the 40 remaining lawyers to stay until the work is complete.
