WASHINGTON, DC (September 6, 2016) — International law firm McDermott Will & Emery announced today that En-Jiun Enrica Ma has returned to the firm as a partner in the Tax Practice Group and will be based in the Washington, DC office. Ms. Ma will focus her practice on corporate and partnership tax matters involving acquisitions, mergers, internal restructurings, and supply chain planning.
During her previous time at McDermott, Ms. Ma focused her practice on various aspects of federal and international tax matters for large public corporations and closely-held companies. She practiced at McDermott for four years before joining the in-house team at Johnson & Johnson where she further honed her international tax planning skills.
“We are delighted to welcome Enrica back to McDermott,” said Lowell Yoder, global head of the firm’s Tax Practice. “Enrica was such an asset to us during her previous time at the firm, and we look forward to integrating her back into our global tax platform where she will once again provide superior tax counsel to our clients in the US and around the world.”
“I believe it’s a testament to McDermott’s culture when lawyers like Enrica choose to come back after spending time away from the firm,” said Carolyn Gleason, partner-in-charge of the Washington, DC office. “We are thrilled that Enrica has chosen to rejoin her McDermott family here in DC, and we are looking forward to providing her with a supportive and collegial environment where she can cultivate her practice.”
Ms. Ma received a BA in Business Administration from National Taiwan University, a JD from Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio, and an LLM in taxation from Georgetown University Law Center.
