These included Thelen, of San Francisco, that is voting to dissolve; Bell Boyd, with offices in Chicago, San Diego, and D.C., is laying folks off; and Powell Goldstein, a smaller 'big firm' that is potentially merging with Bryan Cave.

In other interesting news, Missouri and Maryland had similar ideas in order to caution trick-or-treaters, and parents too, against visiting homes of sexual offenders. A federal court has struck down two of the provisions in Missouri though. Maryland, who's now backing off, had wanted the offenders to hang orange pumpkin signs on Halloween that said, ''No candy at this residence.''

An interesting observation was made, too: Why have LA law firms fared better, so far at least, than those in San Francisco? Heller Ehrmann went down about one month ago, and, as already discussed, Thelen is in the throes of dissolution votes now. LA firms still seem to be standing strong though, and none in their top ranks have collapsed.

Next week is sure to see more firms announce layoffs, mergers, dissolutions, and the like.
