Salans to pull plug on Beijing and refocus China efforts on Shanghai
Salans is set to close its five-person Beijing office, leaving the firm with a single base in mainland China in Shanghai. Partners voted to close the office late last month, nearly four years after the office opened in July 2008. Managing counsel Aiping Bao, the only full-time member of staff in Salans' Beijing base, is expected to relocate to Shanghai, taking total headcount in the office to 38. Salans is still in discussions with the four remaining support staff working in Beijing.
