Dentons uses its international reach to act for clients on a global basis, with team members offering multi-jurisdictional expertise in business crime, regulatory law and investigations. The practice was bolstered by the November 2021 arrival of co-head Louisa Caswell from Addleshaw Goddard, an international disputes specialist with a strong record in SFO investigations, and the January 2022 arrival of Chris Brennan, who has deep experience in contentious financial services work. Additionally, counsel Dan Lund joined from Akin Gump LLP in December 2021, bringing significant international sanctions, trade, and AML experience. The team is co-led by Katharine Harle, who advises on financial markets and regulatory investigations, including acting for brokers in FCA proceedings.
