Latham & Watkins1 is pleased to announce that Pamela Reddy will join the London office as a partner in the White Collar Defense & Investigations Practice. Reddy is an accomplished litigator with a long track record of success handling complex global and cross-border white collar crime, and related investigations involving multiple regulators. Her practice focuses on advising global companies and senior executives on all stages of investigations, from internal investigations, interviews under caution, government investigations and, where needed, defending clients in jury trials.

“We are delighted to welcome Pamela to the firm,” said Stephen Kensell, Office Managing Partner of Latham’s London office. “She is widely regarded as a leading UK-qualified white collar litigator with a formidable reputation advising companies and individuals on a variety of high-profile internal and external investigations. She will bring substantial senior expertise to our strong and growing London practice.”

Reddy has more than 25 years' experience advising on a variety of complex domestic and cross-border fraud, bribery and corruption, market abuse, and money laundering investigations; and regularly represents clients in high-profile criminal investigations involving the Serious Fraud Office, Financial Conduct Authority, Department of Justice, National Crime Agency, Financial Reporting Council, and the Dubai Financial Services Authority. She also advises on public inquiries and internal investigations, including for well-known sports clubs, and has advised on workplace culture reviews and allegations surfacing amid the #MeToo movement.

“Latham is one of only a very few firms equipped to handle high-stakes, global investigations involving multiple regulators,” added Martin Davies, Global Vice Chair of Latham’s Litigation & Trial Department. “Pamela’s expertise, connections, and track record before the UK’s regulatory authorities are market leading, and she will play a key role as we continue to establish Latham as the go-to firm for complex, cross-border investigations work.”

“Pamela’s knowledge and experience strengthens our on-the-ground capability to expand our share of UK-based investigative work and she will successfully partner with our US, continental Europe, and Asia practice to enhance our global profile handling significant investigations that stretch across markets and continents,” continued Davies.

We are excited to welcome her to our world-class team.”
