"McDermott Will Hires from Haynes & Boone"
Global Competition Review, October 14, 2010
Alison Smith was quoted concerning her move to McDermott's Houston office to become a partner in the Firm's competition law practice. Ms. Smith was formerly a partner in several other global law firms and a past deputy assistant attorney general in the Department of Justice Antitrust Division, which she said "has given me a unique perspective on and familiarity with antitrust and government enforcement." She added that "McDermott Will is a strong player in litigation, white-collar criminal defense and antitrust, and I am attracted to its very robust international and national platform. The firm gives me a great opportunity to build on my experience in the energy and health industries." Ms. Smith's move to the firm was also noted in AmLaw Daily's "The Churn" feature (October 13) and the Houston Chronicle (October 16).
