Speaking anonymously to the Washington Post,  several attorneys said dozens of career antitrust lawyers at the Justice Department say they are likely to quit if the department goes ahead with plans to close four regional offices.

Plans were announced earlier this month to close offices in the antitrust division in Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas and Philadelphia, the Post reported.  Consequently, there are plans to move 94 attorneys and support staff to offices in Chicago, New York, San Francisco and headquarters in Washington. The plan is part of an effort to “consolidate operations and focus on larger criminal investigations,” according to the Post.

The Department has offered to pay for and support staffer’s moving process, but that may not be enough for some. “There aren’t a lot of people who’ve been with the division a long time who can pick up and move,” said one attorney from the Philadelphia office, according to the Post. “Many people have families and spouses with jobs where they’re already located. And there’s no assurances that in two years there won’t be further cuts, and then we’ll lose a job we picked up and moved for.”
