McDermott will be opening a new office in Frankfurt, Germany, with four partners from Dewey & LeBoeuf's office there. It says the corporate finance and securities team is headed by Philipp von Ilberg, who will be in charge of the new Frankfurt office. The other three are Joseph Marx, Dr. Martin Kniehase and Dr. Moritz von Hutten. “Opening in Frankfurt with such high-caliber lawyers is an important strategic move for the firm and our clients," said McDermott co-chair Peter J. Sacripanti in the release. "Frankfurt is a key international financial center in one of the strongest economies of the world. It is also our third German office, with Munich and Dusseldorf celebrating their 10-year anniversary in the summer."
