CHICAGO (October 16, 2008) — To assist our clients as they continue to address the effects of the current economic environment, McDermott Will & Emery has created a Markets Restructuring Group. The purpose of the Group is to analyze the impact of the financial environment and recent legislative/regulatory initiatives on our clients to help them position themselves more advantageously in the future.
"As a Firm, we have developed teams of lawyers to respond to our clients to meet their needs in light of the current financial climate," commented Michael Fayhee, head of the group and a member of the Firm's executive committee. "Our goal is to bring critical knowledge from the necessary disciplines together in a coordinated response to our clients' needs in the United States and internationally with speed, agility and creativity."
The group is chaired by Mr. Fayhee and includes six practice teams: Financial Services (led by David Taub and John Lutz), Regulatory, Disputes (led by Abbe Lowell), Transactions (led by Hugh Nineham), Tax/Executive Compensation (led by Mr. Fayhee) and Government Strategies (led by Steve Ryan).
