Seyfarth Shaw has recruited eight partners from three different law firms to open two new offices in Australia.
The offices, which are in Sydney and Melbourne, are part of a global strategy to offer major corporate clients a one-stop shop for dealing with international labor and employment matters, Reuters reports.
The Australian (sub. req.) reports that the eight partners were recruited by Seyfarth from Arnold Bloch Leibler; Ashurst; and Herbert Smith Freehills.
The 800-attorney Chicago-based firm opened an office in Shanghai in April and in London about two years ago. It also has offices in eight other U.S. cities.
