McDermott Boosts Miami Corporate & Restructuring Team


International law firm McDermott Will & Emery continues to grow its Corporate and Transactional practice with the addition of Miami-based partner Craig Rasile.

“We are proactively recruiting highly regarded and deeply experienced restructuring lawyers with the expertise to help our clients understand and navigate their options during these uncertain times and beyond,” said Harris Siskind, global head of McDermott’s Corporate and Transactional Group. “Craig is an outstanding lawyer who bolsters our restructuring capabilities and can serve as the trusted advisor our clients need now more than ever.”

Craig’s practice focuses on insolvencies with an emphasis on bankruptcies, corporate restructurings, creditors’ rights, workouts and commercial litigation. His experience spans several industries, including retail, healthcare, energy, telecommunications, gaming, transportation, franchise operations, manufacturing, REITs and financial institutions.

Craig joins a growing restructuring practice at McDermott, which also includes recent additions Felicia Perlman and Brad Giordano in Chicago, Kristin Going in New York, David Hurst in Wilmington and Jeff Reisner in Los Angeles.

“Clients today are looking for legal advisors with business-savvy and foresight who know what matters and who are ready to do what it takes to make it happen. Craig is just that. His efforts will help support our tremendous growth in Miami and equip us to meet the increasing demand we’re seeing from our clients in restructuring,” said Jerry Sokol, chair of the Firm’s US Health Transactions Group and managing partner of the Miami office.

“I have been extremely impressed by McDermott’s stellar reputation in the healthcare, private equity and IP practice areas. Moreover, the Firm offers a perfect combination of an open and collegial environment coupled with a high caliber and full service platform that my restructuring, corporate and private equity clients have come to expect,” Craig said.

Craig earned his AB from Grinnell College and his JD from the University of Miami Law School.
