Leading international law firm McDermott Will & Emery today announced that transaction lawyer Peter Healy has joined the Corporate and Transactional practice as a partner based in San Francisco.

Peter represents issuers and underwriters in public offerings, going-private transactions, private placements and other capital market transactions. His practice also includes the representation of private equity firms, sovereign wealth funds and hedge funds in their investment activities.

“In only a few short years in the Bay Area, McDermott has become known in the market as being a great place to work, with an open and collegial environment focused on providing the highest level of client service. I am thrilled to be joining the team,” added Peter.
