Lateral hire Daniel O’Gorman joins Walker Morris as corporate partner to boost M&A and capital markets offering

Law firm Walker Morris has expanded its Corporate Group with the appointment of new partner Daniel O’Gorman to enhance its service offering.

He joins from DWF where he was national Head of the Equity Capital Markets group.  He has particular experience in international and cross-border M&A for corporate and private equity clients.

Daniel brings over 18 years’ experience of working in the City having previously spent 10 years at Travers Smith. He has a national reputation as a leading lawyer for IPOs and equity fundraising transactions and is ranked by both the Legal 500 and Chambers guides to the legal profession.

He has advised on a number of recent notable transactions including Custodian REIT Plc’s £130 million IPO on the London Stock Exchange’s Main Market and the acquisition by Laborie Medical Technologies of Netherlands-headquartered group Medical Measurement Systems.

John Hamer, Head of the Walker Morris Corporate Group said:

“Daniel’s appointment is a major lateral hire for us both as a team and an organisation and comes in response to a steady rise in the demand for our corporate services, particularly for cross-border M&A and equity capital markets transactions.  It will allow us to further capitalise on these areas of work and build on the team’s existing expertise.  Having someone with Daniel’s national standing and valuable experience to work alongside our existing team will further enhance our client service offering.”

Daniel O’Gorman added:

“Walker Morris has a strong reputation nationally for the transactional work done by the corporate team.  The Corporate Team is ranked in tier 1 by leading independent guides to the profession and advises an impressive range of corporate and institutional clients based both within and outside the UK.”
