Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice with the addition of Daniel Turgel as a new partner in London.
"With the arrival of Daniel, we are continuing to pursue our strategic ambition of building a market leading public company practice in London, the world's second largest legal market," said White & Case partner John Reiss, Head of the Firm's Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice. "Daniel adds further strength to our English law M&A team in London, and continues the expansion of our UK M&A and advisory capabilities."
Turgel, who joins the Firm's Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice, advises clients across a range of sectors including TMT, energy (oil & gas; power), financial institutions, pharmaceuticals, technology, private equity and real estate on complex public and private mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and broader corporate matters. He also has extensive experience advising on Israel-related transactions, having co-founded and run Linklaters' Israel practice since 2011, with significant time spent on-the-ground in Tel Aviv. He joins White & Case from Linklaters, where he trained, and brings more than 11 years of experience.
"Daniel is a highly experienced M&A lawyer whose practice has exciting synergies with our strategic growth priorities," said White & Case partner Allan Taylor, Regional Section Head, EMEA M&A/Corporate.
White & Case partner Colin Diamond, co-head of the Firm's Israel practice, said: "Daniel's experience advising on Israeli matters will further strengthen our position as the leading global law firm advising on Israel-related transactions and litigation."
Oliver Brettle, executive partner in London and a member of the Firm's Executive Committee, said: "Our 2020 strategy includes a focus on profitable growth in London and in M&A. The arrival of Daniel represents further progress in both areas, and follows the recent lateral additions to our London M&A team of partners Patrick Sarch and Guy Potel, and the forthcoming arrival of Dominic Ross. They join a strong existing M&A team in London and globally."
