Lawyers to turn off lights at Andersen

Staff numbers at Andersen's offices worldwide have shrunk from 85,000 to just 3,000 with lawyers amongst those left to handle the Enron fall-out.

Lawyers, IT staff, internal finance staff and some people at training facilities are believed to be the only people remaining at the defunct firm, although Andersen has not said what they are doing there.

According to the FT, the lawyers are dealing with piles of lawsuits from shareholders and former employees at Enron, and could be kept busy for years to come.

The once prestigious Andersen name has now ceased to do any audit work, with its 2,500 public audit clients having switched to other firms.
