White & Case is set to close its office in Dresden by the end of the year as managing partner Axel Bauer announces his decision to retire. After the office closes, the five remaining Dresden-based White & Case lawyers will launch a legal arm for KPMG in the German city. Last week the firm announced that it is to exit the Italian market, though it has stressed that neither of the office closures are related to the ongoing review of its worldwide business by management consultancy McKinsey.
