CHICAGO — Sidley Austin, which has its largest operations in Chicago, will open a new office in Sydney, Australia, on May 1, giving the law firm six offices in the Asia Pacific region. Sidley is nabbing the managing partner of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman’s Sydney office, Bob Meyers, to take the helm of its new office as a Sidley partner, the firm said in a release. In his Sydney practice, Meyers has advised Australian companies and international investment banks on raising capital, stock exchange listings, and cross-border mergers and acquisitions. The increased number and sophistication of transactions in Australia drove the decision to open the new office, said Tom Albrecht, a member of Sidley’s executive and management committees overseeing international operations. Sidley’s other offices in the region are in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Singapore.
