The addition of Josh is the latest step in that strategic expansion,” said Harris Siskind, global head of McDermott’s Corporate & Transactional practice. “At McDermott we continuously strive to better serve our clients. The recent additions of these high-caliber lawyers are a testament to that commitment.”
