McDermott Will & Emery has added a partner to its tax practice in Washington, the firm announced Wednesday.
Martin Milner, formerly an associate with Mayer Brown, joins McDermott as a partner. He focuses his practice on mergers, acquisitions, dispositions and restructuring transactions as it relates to the tax code.
Prior to joining Mayer Brown, Milner worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers on mergers and acquisitions. During his time at PWC, Milner worked with McDermott attorneys in Chicago. He said the quality of service the attorneys offered were big draws. When he moved to big law, Milner said in an interview that his work became more international in nature.
“It’s an opportunity to leverage the platform and expand the service for existing clients as well as bring some new clients in,” Milner said in an interview.
