Lawyers in the Rotterdam office of Simmons & Simmons will learn their fate by the end of January following a consultation over closing the branch.
Rotterdam is the firm’s second-largest office with 27 partners, but has not made the expected gains in the Dutch market since Simmons merged with local firm Nolst Trenite in 2002.
