Where there's a Will, there's McDermott and Emery -- and about 1,000 lawyers. McDermott Will & Emery, one of the largest law firms in the US, maintains more than 15 offices in the US and in Europe. It also maintains alliances with lawyers in China in order to increase its geographic reach to Asia. Practice areas include antitrust, corporate, employee benefits, government strategies, intellectual property, international, mergers and acquisitions, tax, and trial law. E. H. McDermott founded the firm in 1934; since then it has represented clients across more than 70 countries around the globe.
In early 2012 the firm advised A. M. Castle during its $165 million acquisition of Tube Supply.
McDermott expanded in 2011 with the launching of an office in Paris. The new office has expertise in cross-border transactions, which includes corporate, tax, competition, employment and litigation.
McDermott now has seven offices across Europe, including Brussels, London, Milan, Rome, Düsseldorf, and Munich. (Before the recession took hold, the firm opened an office in Houston in 2008.)
In Asia, the firm has a strategic alliance with MWE China Law Offices in Shanghai. – less
