Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker adds a fourth Asian office
McDermott merges with two offices of largest Italian firm
US-based McDermott Will & Emery has increased its European presence in the past week by absorbing 130 lawyers in two separate offices of Italy's largest firm, Carnelutti. McDermott will be adding Milan and Rome offices to its European practice, which already boasts almost 100 lawyers spread across three offices in London, Dusseldorf, and Munich. Carnelutti will not cease to exist as its own entity, however, as several of the firm's offices, including those in Padua and Paris and a portion of the Rome office, will not be following their colleagues over to McDermott. These lawyers, who number in the 50s, have chosen to continue to practice under the banner of their old firm, and will not face opposition in doing so. Legal Week, 9/5/03
With offices in Beijing, Tokyo, and Hong Kong, Paul Hastings Janofsky and Walker is further adding to their strong presence in Asia with a second mainland China office in Shanghai. The office will be headed by the former Partner-in-Charge of the Shanghai office of Jones Day
and will initially house eight attorneys. The former CFO and COO of Morgan Stanley's real estate funds in Asia, as well as a relocating partner from Paul Hasting's San Francisco office, have also been designated as senior attorneys at the new office. The new office is the 13th for Paul Hastings. New York Law Journal 9/3/03
