Amid Defections, McDermott Adds Practice Head, Eyeing Future Growth


Leigh-Alexandra Basha, who left another major global law firm to start an international private client practice for McDermott as a Washington, DC partner, illustrates the Firm’s commitment to expand that practice. Ms. Basha said says she is looking forward to “the opportunity to work with the best of breed of international private client lawyers” at McDermott as she grows her client base, and practice head Henry Christensen called her “a wonderful lawyer” who he first met as a member of the International Academy of Estate and Trust Law.
