NEW YORK, March 2 LAWFUEL -[ The Law News Net– Driven by the continued growth of its
New York practice, McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce the
relocation of its New York office from Rockefeller Plaza to a substantially
larger space at 340 Madison Avenue. McDermott’s New York office opened in
1988 with fewer than 20 lawyers through a local acquisition. Now, less than
two decades later, the Firm has nearly 150 lawyers practicing from its New
York office.

“Our need for more space in New York underscores McDermott’s commitment to
continued success in the New York market,” said Peter J. Sacripanti, partner-
in-charge of the New York office. “This move will enhance our ability serve
our clients both locally and around the world.”

The Firm’s New York office added 16 lateral partners and 19 associates in
2005. In the first two months of 2006, the Firm has welcomed another six
attorneys. Over the past five years, there has been a nearly 30 percent
increase in the number of lawyers based in McDermott’s New York office.

Lawyers based in McDermott’s New York office represent a broad range of
regional, U.S. and international clients, including some of the world’s
largest publicly and privately held companies, financial institutions, venture
capital-backed start-ups and individuals. As part of its international
practice, our New York office represents a wide range of multinationals and
financial services institutions based in Korea, Israel, Germany, Switzerland,
Austria and other countries.

27, 2006, is:
