Dorsey & Whitney plans to board up its San Francisco office
Minneapolis-based firm Dorsey & Whitney plans to close down its San Francisco operations by the end of this year and strengthen its existing Palo Alto practice.

Dorsey & Whitney entered in the San Francisco market in 2002 by merging with Flehr Hohbach Test Albritton & Herbert. Since then, it has witnessed steady decline in its attorney count, with nearly 75 percent of the staff leaving the firm for better opportunities.

Dorsey & Whitney began its Palo Alto operation last year by merging with Ritchey Fisher Whitman & Klein and has grown from 15 to 25 counselors. The attorneys here practice in areas such as litigation, financing and acquisitions, employment, tax, and estate planning. Bizjournals.com reports that the shift is in line with the firm's decision to reduce additional expenses and consolidate its operations at one location.

Dorsey & Whitney LLP.
