Carol Harrington was profiled in this article, which called her “one of the country’s top estate planning and wealth management attorneys” and noted that in 2006 she had become McDermott’s first female department head with responsibility for the Private Client group of some 70 lawyers and 30 non-lawyer professionals. Ms. Harrington discussed her career path, in which at one time she was the Firm’s only reduced-time equity partner, and added, “I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to work in a challenging profession, associating with highly intelligent people.”
