You will work closely with the McKinsey’s Tax, Finance, Treasury, Employment, Benefits and other Firm functions on projects with a corporate component, which includes working on entities in the U.S. and outside the U.S. You will advise and respond promptly to Firm functions and Firm offices globally on corporate matters and requests that arise. You work with U.S. and foreign outside counsel to coordinate filings and other corporate requirements under local law, and with McKinsey attorneys and other colleagues on corporate and other projects as needed.
