The Far East has generated a swathe of newspaper headlines in recent months. While Japan maintains its status as Asia's largest and most sophisticated financial market, Allen & Overy is putting its Tokyo office under review and Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton was forced to close its underperforming Tokyo office in late April.
