White & Case is set to become one of the first major international law firms to pull out of the Italian market as it prepares to close its Milan office at the end of November. The 15-lawyer Milan office is the U.S. firm's only presence in the country, as it closed its offices in Rome and Turin three years ago. The office's sole equity partner, Sean Geary, will relocate to New York while the five local partners and the remaining lawyers will leave White & Case.
