White & Case LLP’s finance litigation team handles a broad range of contentious areas, including court proceedings (in the UK and elsewhere), regulatory investigations, internal investigations, pre-action dispute advice, and questions on contentious or potentially contentious matters. The practice acted for Deutsche Bank in its response to investigations by multiple regulators, which arose from suspicious trading on its Moscow equities desk; the issues in the case included anti-money laundering controls, Know Your Client checks, sanctions, banking secrecy and data privacy. John Reynolds is London head of commercial litigation and co-head of the global financial institutions practice; and Charles Balmain is the EMEA regional section head for commercial litigation and white collar. Other names to note are London white-collar crime team head Jonathan Pickworth, Amanda Cowell, Rory Hishon and Joanna Dimmock. Key growth included hiring Hannah Field-Lowes, formerly co-head of disputes at Weil, Gotshal & Manges (London) LLP’s London office, and promoting Paddy Patrick to counsel.
