Clifford Chance bolsters leading global regulatory enforcement and white collar crime group

International law firm, Clifford Chance announced today that Dorian Drew is to join the firm's leading global regulatory enforcement and white collar crime group as a partner in the London office, starting in summer 2013.

Mr Drew, currently a partner at Norton Rose, is a solicitor advocate specialising in regulatory investigations and enforcement action within the financial services industry. He has broad expertise in acting for clients, both corporations and senior individuals in investigations and actions brought by bodies such as the Financial Services Authority, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the US Department of Justice across a range of issues.

Jeremy Sandelson, global head of Litigation & Dispute Resolution at Clifford Chance, comments: "Dorian will be a great addition to the busy contentious regulatory team at Clifford Chance and a valuable resource for our clients. Businesses are increasingly facing challenges from regulators, often coordinating across borders, and related fines are hitting record highs. As a result they need the sophisticated and practical cross border advice and support that we offer. Given our existing strong reputation in this field it makes sense for us to continue to invest in high quality talent."

Dorian Drew adds: "I am really looking forward to working with my future colleagues in Clifford Chance's contentious regulatory group. The firm is a natural choice for me, providing an unrivalled international network and client base, and strong teams for both contentious and advisory regulatory issues."

Clifford Chance's global regulatory and financial crime group is led by Roger Best and Carlos Conceicao and comprises 44 partners in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific. The group advises leading organisations and individuals on regulatory enforcement and criminal investigations into corporate activity across multiple jurisdictions, with expertise across all areas of business and financial regulation. The firm has teams of experts to help clients manage the legal, commercial and reputational risks that are associated with regulatory and white collar crime issues, and can also advise on the recovery of the proceeds of fraud through civil court actions.
