Dewey seeking to shutter Russian, Kazakh offices

The firm says the process will take six to 18 months and could earn up to $158,000

The Dewey & LeBoeuf saga took on some international flavor this week, as the bankrupt firm asked for permission to shut down its offices in Russia and Kazakhstan.

Dewey opened its Russian office in 1991 and its Kazakh outpost in 1995. Following the firm’s bankruptcy, however, 42 attorneys from those locations jumped ship for Morgan, Lewis & Bockius.
