Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation

Overview


In today’s global, fast-paced marketplace, employers face challenges on every front. McDermott’s benefits practice operates worldwide, with the geographic coverage and deep resources necessary to serve clients at every level: internationally, nationally, regionally and locally. We have deep industry experience, as well, and represent employers in virtually every sector, including manufacturing, financial services, health care, education and construction.

A key differentiator from other firms is that McDermott has traditionally invested heavily in the employee benefits practice area, unlike other firms where this practice exists as a secondary support function. For McDermott, employee benefits is a prominent practice that attracts clients directly to the Firm.
