Chadbourne & Parke has finalised the takeover of the Warsaw and Kyiv offices of defunct Chicago firm Altheimer & Gray.
The firm first began talking to Altheimer’s Polish and Ukrainian offices last Summer.
However since Altheimer has been embroiled in months of bankruptcy proceedings Chadbourne only won approval from the State of Ilinois for the takeover on December 10.
According to Chadbourne’s firmwide managing partner Charles O’Neill, the firm agreed the deal with the Altheimer’s Poland and Ukraine partners in late October, finalising the process with the Altheimer dissolution committee before taking the deal to the bankruptcy court.
The move gives Chadbourne an extra 44 lawyers, 35 in Poland and nine in Ukraine, and brings the number of offices at the firm to 10.
The rest of Altheimers’ Central and Eastern European and Asian network, comprising offices in Prague, Bratislava, Bucharest, Istanbul and Shanghai, was snapped up by Salans last September.
