'A pleasure to work with', the lawyers at Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP have a real focus on representing financial services industry clients in both criminal and regulatory matters. According to one client, the team's 'strength in depth is remarkable and its ability to soak a case with talented resource is a standout feature'. The group is jointly led from New York by Edward Little (who 'engenders huge confidence in his clients and is trusted and feared by opponents') and 'creative-thinker' Marc Weinstein, whom clients praise as 'a strong courtroom advocate'. In one highlight, the duo represented former JP Morgan junior banker Julien Grout in connection with criminal and civil charges arising out of the London Whale scandal; a case that was dismissed by the DOJ and SEC. Weinstein is also representing Juan Angel Napout, former president of the South American Football Confederation and vice president of Fifa, in the sentencing phase of criminal proceedings in federal court in New York, and in an appeal at the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, arising from charges of bribery. Another key figure in the Washington DC office is John Wood. Further, the DC office was recently bolstered by the arrivals of Ryan Fayhee from Baker McKenzie LLP and Laura Perkins from the DOJ.
