Mr. Crofskey added: "McDermott Will & Emery offers me a great opportunity to be part of building out the cross-border M&A practice. The strength of the Firm throughout Europe and the United States was of particular interest to me, and I am excited to be part of the implementation of the Firm’s growth plans."
