London — Mayer Brown announced today that experienced cross-border disputes lawyer Sarah Garvey has joined the firm as a partner in its Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice in London. Sarah has substantial experience representing clients in complex cross-border financial and commercial court proceedings and in arbitration, as well as providing high level strategic advice on litigation and risk issues on transactions. She joins from Allen & Overy.

“Sarah’s experience aligns with our current strategic positioning, advising on high stakes disputes, arbitrations and investigations for banks, corporates, funds and international organisations” said Ian McDonald, co-head of Mayer Brown’s Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice. “Current economic uncertainty means clients are increasingly looking for trusted advisers to steer them through complex litigation across international boundaries. Sarah is an experienced litigator, with a complementary client base to ours, and she will bolster our existing offering, assisting us in delivering high level advice to clients in a competitive market.”

Sarah has a well-established reputation as an expert in private international law and immunity issues, as well as extensive experience acting in a wide range of financial, shareholder and contractual disputes, M&A disputes, jurisdiction disputes and on enforcement actions, advising financial institutions, central banks, international organisations, corporates and funds.

Dominic Griffiths, Mayer Brown’s London Managing Partner said: “Our focus to attract high calibre lateral partners remains a priority. Sarah’s hire not only reinforces our position as a firm known for complex cross-border disputes and international arbitration, but she will also supplement our key competencies in financial services and broader corporate sectors, providing synergies to our project finance, banking, and funds teams.”
