London - Leading global law firm Mayer Brown announces the hire of Alistair Graham as a Litigation partner in London. Alistair joins from White & Case LLP where he was a partner in the London Commercial Litigation practice.
With a background in financial services disputes, Alistair has particular experience in regulatory and fraud investigations, white collar work and international asset tracing. He has also worked on international insolvency cases as well as disputes involving contracts, negligence, breaches of trust, confidential information and warranty claims. He has coordinated and managed a number of high profile cross border disputes.
Alistair previously worked as Enforcement Counsel to the Financial Services Authority ("FSA"), assisting in the run up to the introduction of the Investigative Disciplinary and Enforcement regime introduced under the 2000 Financial Services Market Act. During this time he handled a number of high profile cases on behalf of the FSA.
David Allen, Head of Litigation in London, said: "Alistair is highly regarded for his strong track record in handling all types of complex cross border litigation work, especially in the TMT and oil and gas sectors. We already have a strong presence in London and his appointment will significantly add to that while enabling us to continue to develop our international capabilities."
Alistair Graham said: "Mayer Brown has a fantastic global platform with strong capabilities in Europe, the US and Asia, demonstrated by winning a string of high profile cases over recent months. Now is a really exciting time for me to be joining the group."
Mayer Brown's Litigation team worked on some of the top cases in 2012 including significant wins in the Supreme Court for clients such as the liquidators of NewCap Reinsurance Corporation (NewCap Re) on a complex cross border application for enforcement of an Australian preference judgment and BASF, the world's biggest chemicals producer, which was the first antitrust case to be heard by the Supreme Court.
