Echoing moves by their corporate clients, major national and international law firms are altering travel plans and reevaluating events because of coronavirus outbreaks in several countries, including canceling firm meetings in the United States.

Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe has told partners it will not be holding a planned retreat in Texas due to coronavirus concerns, multiple sources said. The partnership retreat had been scheduled for this week in San Antonio. The retreat has been postponed and will be held at a later date, the firm confirmed, but declined to comment further.
