McDermott Will & Emery's London office is bolstering its corporate department by taking on two new partners as part of the firm's worldwide expansion plan
Richard Britain is joining the firm from Linklaters, while Nicholas Azis is moving from Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom's London office. Both lawyers will join McDermott as partners.
