Daniel returns to Whitehead Monckton following a seven-year absence during which time he became a partner at asb law LLP and went on to head the corporate finance team and see through a sale of asb law LLP to Knights PLC.
His dedication and commitment to his clients saw him awarded the Insider Dealmakers’ South East Corporate Lawyer of the Year in 2020.
Daniel originally trained with the firm’s longstanding head Janet Goode, who retains a key role in the team but will have more time to expand her ever-growing Notarial Practice alongside her corporate work.
Daniel said: “I always envisaged returning to Whitehead Monckton when the time was right and I am delighted that the time has come.
“Whitehead Monckton has a culture that employees and clients want to be a part of. The CoEmp team is very strong and experienced, and I look forward to building on Janet’s hard work and achievements.
“It’s an exciting time for us all and I think a journey the team, our clients and contacts will enjoy being a part of.”
Whitehead Monckton managing director Chris Longden added: “It is always great to announce the appointment of new talent to our ever-expanding team, but even more so when the joiner has trained with us.
“We are eagerly awaiting to see how Daniel will shape and drive the team going forward. We know that Daniel’s technical know-how, ambition and business network make him the ideal recruit to lead our team in the future.”
