Sidley Austin is opening an office in Sydney, Australia, this week. The expansion could be more accurately described as a lateral pickoff. Robert Meyers, currently the managing partner of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman’s Sydney office, will join the firm as partner and bring with him a bevy of clients involved with cross-border mergers and acquisitions and structured finance transactions. “Sydney’s a financial center and we saw an opportunity to get into that market,” says Carter Phillips, managing partner of Sidley’s D.C. office. Phillips says Sidley saw the Sydney office as an entr�e into the Asian marketplace, specifically investment banks and financial institutions. It will also be used to support Sidley’s London office. Meyers will also bring over four associates. The Sydney office is Sidley’s 16th.
