White & Case LLP has announced the addition of Laura McDaniels as a partner in the Global Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) and Employment, Compensation & Benefits (ECB) practices in the firm's Silicon Valley office.

The Global Head of the M&A department John Reiss has acknowledged McDaniels' recognised talent:

"Laura is a talented lawyer who brings deep experience advising private and public companies on the compensation and benefits aspects of complex transactions."

Much of McDaniels' professional career has been spent in Silicon Valley, she has deep experience working with emerging growth companies. He also has extensive experience working with technology companies. 

Prior to joining White & Case, McDaniels was a partner at Baker Botts and before that she spent more than ten years at Cooley as a special counsel in the Compensation and Benefits department.
