Dufner rejoins White & Case from Linklaters. He had previously been a partner at White & Case from 2004 to 2009.
“We are excited that Dan has decided to rejoin the Firm,” said John Reiss, head of White & Case’s Global M&A Practice. “Our Global M&A practice, particularly in New York, London and Asia, is a key strategic priority for the Firm. We are focused on continuing to grow that practice.”
