WASHINGTON, DC (August 11, 2017) - McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce that the Firm’s Captive Insurance team was named “Law Firm of the Year” at the 2017 US Captive Services Awards in Burlington, Vermont. Elizabeth Erickson, partner in McDermott’s US & International Tax Practice Group, was on-site to accept the award on behalf of the Firm.
The judges noted that, “McDermott Will & Emery’s varied legal practice ensures captive clients can go to the firm on a range of issues – from claims and tax to regulatory and transactional.” The judges were impressed by the Firm’s “impressive book of case work and deep understanding of the captive sector.”
