McDermott Grows into New Wilmington Space, Reflecting Increased Demand for Complex Legal Services


International law firm McDermott Will & Emery has relocated its expanding Delaware office to the Brandywine Building in the heart of downtown Wilmington.

With close proximity to clients and courthouses, McDermott’s new Wilmington office is ideally located and provides a space designed for collaboration and innovation. This office move is part of the Firm’s larger overall design approach and growth mindset for the future, ensuring clients have the support and counsel they need in the geographies where they need it most.

Located at 1000 N. West Street, the Brandywine Building is a 19-story high rise originally built in 1970 by the DuPont Company and recently was converted to modern office space. The McDermott office features bright spaces, high ceilings, expansive areas for collaboration and breathtaking views of the city and surrounding countryside. The office also includes the Rockford Employee Lounge, adjacent to the reception lobby via a glass wall, a modern design element unique to Wilmington.

“Since initially planting our flag in Wilmington in 2019, we’ve expanded our footprint and have established ourselves as a go-to firm for litigation, transactions and corporate counseling and restructurings in the Delaware market,” said Ashley Altschuler, managing partner of the Firm’s Delaware office. “This transformational new office space is a manifestation of our McDermott family vibe and friendly culture, connecting us with our clients, colleagues and our community.”

Historically rich and economically thriving, Delaware is the corporate home to more than 65% of Fortune 500 companies. In addition to the Court of Chancery, the nation’s preeminent business court, Delaware hosts one of the busiest bankruptcy courts in the country. Delaware also has become a leading jurisdiction for IP litigation, among other distinctions that tie directly to the nuanced counsel that our innovative teams bring to any matter.
