Linklaters has boosted its New York corporate offering with the hire of partner Daniel Dufner from White & Case.
Dufner is the third new partner at Linklaters’ US practice this year. Last month, Lewis Steinberg joined as head of tax from UBS and banking associate Danelle le Cren was made up in the annual promotions round.
Linklaters US managing partner Larry Byrne, who worked with Dufner at White & Case before joining Linklaters in 2006, said: “We will continue to look for opportunities to make key strategic hires.
“Dan is one of the top M&A partners in New York.”
Dufner’s historic clients include satellite TV company DISH Network, digital set top box producer EchoStar and health company Wellpoint.
He appointed as a partner at White & Case in 2004, having left Sullivan & Cromwell where he was an associate.
