Zeena SalehDentons

The practice at Dentons was recently bolstered by the January 2022 arrival of Chris Brennan, former practice head of White & Case LLP, who arrives with significant exposure to misconduct affairs, particularly in the retail and wholesale markets. Katharine Harle leads the practice and is especially well-versed in s166 reviews, internal investigations, conduct and culture issues, and governance and remediation affairs. At the more junior end, counsel Zeena Saleh, a specialist in cross-border matters, is hailed as a ‘star asset for any team‘.
