The gold rush is over—and so is DLA Piper’s short time in Whitehorse.

A year after combining with Canadian firm Davis, the global legal giant has closed its small office in the Klondike. A call to DLA Piper’s Whitehorse outpost Thursday was routed to Vancouver, where an operator confirmed the closure. But the firm has not yet completely abandoned the Canadian wilderness.

DLA Piper’s website states that it still has a sole associate maintaining its operations in Yellowknife, capital of the neighboring Northwest Territories, in what could be the most northerly office for an Am Law 100 firm. A statement sought from DLA Piper on the status of its outposts in the region was not provided by the time of this story.
