Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson has added a new partner to its UK private equity team led by former Kirkland & Ellis partner Graham White.

Daniel Oates joins the team from O'Melveny & Myers where he had led the London M&A team.

Oates had worked alongside new colleague White when both were at Kirkland. White quit Kirkland in 2014 to help build Fried Frank's London team.
