“I’m excited to offer my clients access to Vedder’s extensive resources and platform,” said Mr. McDonough. “Their commercial client representation in the corporate finance, global transportation and capital markets sectors was a huge draw for me and I look forward to building out a substantial practice in Los Angeles with my new colleagues.”
