Dear Mr. Freedman:

Thank you for your letter of February 7, enclosing your resume which was referred to me as Chairman of the Hiring Committee by Larry Hoffman. After reviewing and fully discussing your inquiry concerning employment and our staffing needs, we have reluctantly concluded that we are unable to explore further the matter of employment with you.

With the experience and credentials you present, it is difficult for us to have to decline the opportunity to discuss employment with you. At the same time, it is obvious that someone with your qualifications will have little difficulty in finding any number of challenging and rewarding opportunities.

We do appreciate your interest in our firm. We wish you the very best in your future endeavors.

Sincerely,

AKIN, GUMP, STRAUSS, HAUER & FELD
