McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce our Captive Insurance team was named “Law Firm of the Year” at the 2017 US Captive Services Awards in Burlington, Vermont. Elizabeth Erickson, partner in our US & International Tax practice group, was on-site to accept the award on behalf of the Firm.
The judges noted that, “McDermott Will & Emery’s varied legal practice ensures captive clients can go to the firm on a range of issues – from claims and tax to regulatory and transactional.” The judges were impressed by the Firm’s “impressive book of case work and deep understanding of the captive sector.”
This is the second year in a row that McDermott earned a significant award from Captive Review. In 2016, the Firm received the “Onshore Law Firm of the Year” award for its contributions to the captive market through legal expertise and innovation, strategic vision and business winning client care. In past years, the Firm has also been named “Tax Advisory Firm of the Year” and “Captive Healthcare Specialist of the Year.”
McDermott’s Captive Insurance team provides integrated tax, corporate, regulatory and insurance coverage, and reinsurance claims and disputes services to captives and industry participants in high-profile matters affecting the global insurance and reinsurance markets. The team includes McDermott’s insurance coverage practitioners who have decades of experience litigating and resolving high-exposure coverage and reinsurance disputes throughout the United States and in offshore jurisdictions, as well as precedential and other sensitive matters affecting CGL, D&O, E&O, EPL, property, crime, marine, legacy and other lines of business.
