McDermott Corporate Services

Overview


Day-to-day transactional, commercial and corporate compliance tasks are standard practices, yet far from unimportant. They also provide an excellent opportunity to deliver value and efficiency through the effective deployment of legal professionals, processes and technologies.

In order to serve clients’ transactional, commercial and corporate compliance needs with quality, efficiency and value, we created McDermott Corporate Services (MCS). The MCS team—a group of McDermott personnel that together possess the skill and legal background ideal for performing these functions—works in concert with the Firm’s lawyers to provide high-quality services at a lower cost. To achieve these goals, MCS disaggregates corporate legal processes by identifying routine and high-volume activities, creates systems and tools that can be performed at lower costs, and implements accountability and performance standards that preserve the excellence and attention to detail that is a hallmark of McDermott’s work product.
