This article reports that Seattle based law firm Perkins Coie has become the latest in a string of foreign firms to scale back its presence in Asia. As first revealed by Lawyer News Weekly last Wednesday the firm is shutting the doors of its 12-year-old Hong Kong office. Perkins Coie's decision to close its Hong Kong practice was triggered by the continuing economic downturn in the region as well as the outbreak of Sars. According to a wellplaced source, the move will result in all of Perkins Coie's Hong Kong staff, including 15 lawyers, being made redundant. The closure will become effective from 31 March 2005.
