It means the source and nature of my knowledge are confidential, but that it suffices to say, it is not good news which will be trickling out.

Basically all you are saying is "expect more bad news this week", which, given the current state of the world, is not something we needed an anonymous tip-off to figure out.

Heard that at least one national firm laid off associates across all offices this morning.

This info is supposed to be confidential is my first guess. Is this confirmed?

Not sure why you need to be so vague in your posts. We can either wait to hear confirmed news, or you can say that a source (unconfirmed or not) has said that big firms will be laying off lawyers/cutting pay/shutting down, whatever.

 

Saying “shit is hitting the fan this week at some big firms” without further comment or context is simply unhelpful.

Possibly the most likes I've ever seen a post receive that wasn't a Diplock beatdown or sage wisdom from Uriel

Serenely contemplating the laid off associates lying to their friends and family about being employed so that they don't spill the confidential beans.

I heard a rumour that Blaneys laid off around 20 associates.

Yowza. They must already be off the website, if true, because there are only 30 listed there. 

Assuming 20 is correct, that's almost 50%. Insane, if true.

I'm too lazy to do so myself but you could use the wayback machine to see how many lawyers they had listed last month.

Good idea, but wayback isn't catching the "People" section.

This is absolutely not true.
