Norton Rose boosts crime team with white collar hire

Norton Rose Fulbright has hired partner Pamela Reddy to join its corporate and white collar crime team.

Reddy joins from West End firm Simons Muirhead & Burton, where she worked for over two and a half years handling complex fraud, corruption and money laundering cases.

Before that, Reddy was the head of the business crime team at Hodge Jones & Allen, where she worked for over 13 years.

Reddy’s clients are those under investigation by the SFO, CPS and other prosecutors either under caution or compulsorily, and through to the jury trial and beyond.

EMEA head of dispute resolution Peter Scott said: “Investigations increasingly have a global dimension and cooperation between international regulators is the norm. Our global corporate and white collar crime expertise gives clients an integrated solution to these complex, cross-border investigations and prosecutions.

Reddy’s hire is a coup for Norton Rose, which has suffered a string of exits in recent months as it embarks on a rapid expansion plan.

Most recently, it lost its Sydney head of financial institutions Chris Redden to Ashurst, former head of competition Martin Coleman to the Competition Markets Authority (CMA),and international disputes lawyer Deborah Ruff to Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw & Pittman.

The firm also lost a five-strong team from Australian merger partner Henry Davis York ahead of their official merger this year.
