Mayer Brown reconfigures German practice around Düsseldorf
Mayer Brown has announced plans to close its Berlin and Cologne offices, shifting their operations to a new office in Düesseldorf, which is set to open at the start of 2012. The changes are part of a strategy to better target Asian companies with business interests in Düsseldorf.
"[Düsseldorf] is a platform for many Asian companies, in particular Japanese, coming to Germany and Europe," said Jörg Wulfken, the firm's German managing partner and a member of Mayer Brown’s global management committee. "It's a better location. We want to be close to our clients."
The firm’s other German office, in Frankfurt, is unaffected by the change.
