E. Patrick McDermott represented a large Montgomery County employer in successful labor negotiations with the Service Employeeâ€™s International Union. He served as a consultant for a D.C.-based NGO involved in China labor relations development and also attended a conference at City University of New York involving Chinese labor scholars. His family was busy this summer hosting a visiting Chinese professor of law and family from Anhui University School of Law and a former international M.B.A. student, Martin Dahinton, now working as a Lean Management Consultant at Lufthansa Airlines in Frankfurt. Martin always wanted to go deep-sea fishing while at SU but did not get the chance. In an adventure he will long remember, Martin and his German colleague joined with McDermott and his son in helping to catch the boatâ€™s legal limit of 24 yellow fin tuna.
