United States: WilmerHale’s Investigations Practice Ranks Second In GIR’s “Top 30” Inaugural Listing
Last Updated: October 13 2015

Our investigations practice would like to thank clients for entrusting us with their global investigations work. Because of your trust, we have been named to the top of Global Investigations Review's (GIR) inaugural listing of the 30 leading global investigations and compliance practices.

The GIR 30 is the first-ever survey to rank the top 30 law firms for capabilities in cross-border government-led and internal investigations. WilmerHale was ranked second out of 30 investigations practices following a thorough examination of firms' relevant cross-border government and internal investigations and compliance work over the past two years. The final rankings were announced at the GIR Live Awards ceremony at the Conrad Hotel in New York on September 24, with WilmerHale attorneys in attendance to accept the award.

"This is a valued recognition and tremendous compliment for our extensive work in this space," said Partner Boyd Johnson, co-chair of WilmerHale's Investigations and Criminal Litigation Practice. "More than 100 of our partners, spanning multiple departments and practices, have participated in internal and cross-border investigations over the past two years. In addition, attorneys throughout our offices worldwide dedicated more than 130,000 hours to cross-border investigations work over that period. We are proud to be recognized as a leader in this area."

The GIR survey evaluated firms' most noteworthy internal and cross-border investigations, achievements and developments of their investigations practice. The survey also asked firms to demonstrate current activity level through objective data such as partner travel, compliance work, government experience and more.

WilmerHale maintains a deep pedigree in the global investigations area. The investigations work dates back to Partner Lloyd Cutler, counsel to two US Presidents, who spearheaded the development of market-leading investigations capabilities throughout the United States and Germany, and in London, Brussels and Beijing. Currently, the group's capabilities span the full range of regulatory regimes, and across multiple disciplines from cartels, FCPA, white-collar, regulatory, and internal investigations to defending clients in criminal, civil and administrative investigations by various government agencies.
