Global law firm White & Case LLP continues to expand its Global Tax Practice and Global Mergers and Acquisition Practice with the addition of Scott Fryman as a partner in New York.
"Scott is an outstanding transaction-focused tax lawyer with deep expertise across a range of key sectors," said John Reiss, White & Case's Global Head of M&A. "In the first quarter of 2021 Global M&A value had the highest first quarter total on record and White & Case has been involved in a large part of this activity. Adding Scott's tax capabilities to our extremely busy M&A Practice demonstrates our commitment to further building our tax team in the US and the overall growth of our M&A Practice."
Fryman’s practice focuses on the tax aspects of complex business transactions, including domestic and international mergers, acquisitions, investments, divestitures, joint ventures, financings and restructurings. He also has considerable experience advising on SPAC initial public offerings, financings and business combinations. Fryman's work spans a wide range of industries including manufacturing, retail, restaurant and food service, professional services, technology and health care. He joins the Firm from Kirkland & Ellis where he was a partner.
"Our Global Tax Practice continues to be very busy across all sectors," said Kim Boylan, Head of White & Case's Global Tax Practice. "Scott has the necessary experience and skills that will support the needs of our clients' complex transactions."
Fryman is the fourth partner to join White & Case's rapidly growing M&A Practice in the US this year. He follows the additions of Taylor Pullins who joined the Firm's Houston office in January as well as Thomas Christopher and James Hu who joined the Firm's New York office in March.
White & Case is currently ranked #1 in value for Global M&A and #1 in value for US M&A, according to Mergermarket.
