Lehman Does Some More Housecleaning

LEHMAN DOES SOME MORE HOUSECLEANING

Lehman is trying to put to rest long-standing problems in its retail-brokerage division. On Sept. 27, Lehman Brothers dismissed 100 retail brokers, slashing its U.S. force by a third. The cuts follow a two-year effort by Lehman to repair its reputation for overly aggressive sales tactics.
