More problems with Coudert's China operations

Coudert's China practice seems to have gone largely to Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe and DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary. But according to a recent news report:

[S]ome sticking points remain. Three dozen lawyers and staffers in the Beijing office -at least some of whom are going to DLA - now assert that Coudert hasn't complied with severance obligations under Chinese law. An employee there, speaking on condition of anonymity, said a complaint has been filed with the Beijing Justice Bureau and the Chinese Ministry of Labor.

A legal opinion prepared for the employees, a translation of which was obtained by the Recorder, also includes an allegation that Orrick is attempting to transfer to itself Coudert's license to practice in China, which the opinion says would violate Chinese law.

I figure this much is fair use. For the full report, go here.
