cross-border deals. McDaniel specializes in the formation and operation of private equity and venture capital funds investing in China, India and other Asian countries.

“An Asian presence is an integral part our strategic growth. Our strategy is driven by client needs and market demand,” said Regina M. Pisa, chairman and managing partner of Goodwin Procter. “This global team will initially focus on our clients who are investing in India, China and other Asian centers of commerce,” added Pisa.
