McDermott has more than 1,100 lawyers across 19 offices in the United States, Europe and Asia.

History

Chicago lawyers Edward H. McDermott and William M. Emery founded the firm in 1934. Initially focused as a tax law firm, a corporate department was established when Howard H. Will joined the firm in 1941. As the century progressed, the firm added capabilities across the legal spectrum, eventually opening eight more offices on both coasts. By 1984, the firm numbered 150 lawyers; over the ensuing 20 years, however, the firm underwent a significant growth spurt—by the firm's 70th anniversary in 2004, McDermott numbered over 1,000 lawyers.[3]Template:Primary source-inline

Locations

McDermott has 19 offices in the United States, Europe and Asia/Pacific. It has a strategic alliance with MWE China Law Offices[4] in Shanghai China.
