We’ve seen it a lot lately: U.S.-based law firms setting up shop in unique places or merging with other firms—both large and small—to create everything from specialty outposts to law firm powerhouses. But this is a first.
Philadelphia-based Duane Morris announced yesterday that it would be opening an office in Myanmar (also referred to as Burma) in an effort to expand its Asian presence. The office, which will be located in Yangon, Myanmar, is part of the firm’s joint venture with Duane Morris & Selvam. Selvam is a Singapore-based firm Duane Morris partnered with in 2010.
