PwC reveals 750 Lehmans redundancies

PricewaterhouseCoopers has revealed 750 employees from Lehman Borthers Europe have been made redundant.

The firm filed for bankruptcy in the US two weeks ago and has since been restructuring the business.

Tony Lomas, partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, says: “It is extremely disappointing that despite exhausting all avenues these jobs could not be saved.

“As we move into our third week, we continue to be focussed on maximising the value of recoveries for creditors, whilst minimising the impact on other stakeholders as much as possible.”

PwC says arrangements are being made to ensure that over the coming days, the individuals affected by this have the opportunity to attend a one-on-one meeting to discuss how this impacts them personally.
