Dorsey & Whitney to close Sydney office at end of the year


Minneapolis-based firm Dorsey & Whitney is to close its office in Sydney at the end of the year. The base, which is the US firm’s only office in Australia, managed by one partner, will shut its doors in December after five years of operation. Head of the office John Chrisman, a US capital markets and M&A lawyer, intends to relocate to Hong Kong in January shortly after the closure.
