New York


New York is in a class of its own: a global center of commerce, finance, politics, technology and culture. From the heart of this city that never sleeps, McDermott provides clients with a full-spectrum legal counsel in the full range of key legal disciplines, including capital markets, corporate and securities, health care, life sciences, intellectual property, international commercial litigation and arbitration, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, restructuring, tax law, trust and estate planning and administration, and white-collar criminal defense.

We understand the real-world needs of our clients. In addition to our years of experience in private practice, many of our New York-based lawyers have served as in-house general counsel and as prosecutors and senior officials in federal and state law-enforcement agencies. We represent a broad range of regional, US and international clients, including some of the world’s largest publicly and privately held companies, financial institutions, health care organizations, venture capital-backed start-ups and high-net-worth individuals. As part of our international practice, our New York office represents multinationals and financial services institutions based in Korea, Israel, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and other countries.

Our top-ranked lawyers are recognized for the quality of their counsel and client service by Chambers USA, U.S. News-Best Lawyers, The Legal 500, The American Lawyer, The National Law Journal, and other legal publications. As part of a global, full-service law firm, the lawyers of our New York office are prepared to help clients wherever their business interests take them.

Jeffrey Steiner and Todd Finger are co-managing partners for the Firm’s New York office.


We combine personal passions with industry and legal prowess to deliver for our clients every day.
