International law firm Jones Day, which operates an office in Downtown Pittsburgh, said it plans to open an office in Amsterdam in early 2013.
The Netherlands office will be the firm's 10th in Europe and 38th worldwide.
Steve Brogan, the firm's managing partner, said in a written statement that launching an office in Amsterdam demonstrates "Jones Day's confidence in and commitment to the future of the European Union, which remains the largest economy in the world."
Jones Day earlier this year was first on a National Law Journal list that ranked law firms by the number of attorneys practicing in the U.S.
The firm has 1,742 nationwide and 56 in its Pittsburgh office.businessnews
