McDermott Recognized with Go-To Thought Leadership Award for COVID Guidance and Cybersecurity Law


International law firm McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce that it has been recognized with two Go-To Thought Leadership Awards from the National Law Review. McDermott’s Employment and Healthcare practices were highlighted for its OSHA Vaccine Guidance, while the Firm’s Global Privacy & Cybersecurity practice was noted for its NIST Ransomware Coverage.

At a time when the rules surrounding COVID-19 vaccine mandates seemed uncertain, McDermott’s Employment and Healthcare practices provided comprehensive and timely coverage of all the latest news about OSHA vaccine guidance, providing essential insights into an ever-changing area of law when readers needed it most. The authors who contributed insights into this topic included Abigail M. Kagan, Dawn M. Peacock, Michelle S. Strowhiro, Sandra M. DiVarco and Kristen O’Brien.

National Law Review readers also turned to McDermott’s Global Privacy & Cybersecurity practices’ coverage of ransomware risk management for essential guidance to keep their organizations secure. The group’s efforts to break down the new framework helps readers understand what is expected of them and how to prepare for higher standards from government agencies in terms of what constitutes reasonable cybersecurity measures. Authors who contributed insights into this area include Todd S. McClelland, Michael G. Morgan, David P. Saunders, and Scott Ferber.

This is the fourth year the National Law Review formally recognized the unique talents of its contributors. Less than 1% of the authors who publish with the National Law Review receive the “Go-To Thought Leadership Awards.” This year’s winners include more than 85 authors and firms in more than 30 legal practice areas.
