(The misspelling in the title is intentional — read it aloud.)

Partners at Chicago’s Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal voted today to shut the firm’s Charlotte, North Carolina office. The decision affects 11 lawyers and eight staff members.

Sonnenschein chair Elliott Portnoy cited “local marketplace realities, the declining demand for legal services in the Charlotte legal and financial markets, and the needs of our financial institution clients” for the decision.

Some lawyers will be offered the chance to relocate, while others will receive severance packages. The closure will take effect April 1st.

Sonnenschein opened its Charlotte office in April 2007 with three lateral partners from Kilpatrick Stockton; John “Jay” Suhr Jr., Jonathan Nugent and James Tucker. They were joined at the time by two counsel and 13 associates.

The firm has discussed relocation with the three partners; no decision has been made yet about their future at Sonnenschein.
