LONDON – OCTOBER 16, 2018 – Jenner & Block is pleased to announce today that Paul Feldberg has joined the firm’s London office as a partner in its global Investigations, Compliance and Defense Practice.  He joins Christine Braamskamp, a co-chair of the practice, in the London office with whom he has previously worked.  His arrival builds on the firm’s plan to steadily grow its London office with top talent, and provides additional bench strength to Jenner & Block’s recognized Investigations, Compliance and Defense team. 

“We are excited to welcome Paul to Jenner & Block,” said Terrence J. Truax, Jenner & Block’s managing partner.  “Adding a top-tier lawyer like Paul strengthens our London office as well as our Investigations, Compliance and Defense Practice.”

Mr. Feldberg concentrates his practice on advising and defending companies and individuals in matters relating to criminal fraud, corruption, money laundering, sanctions, insider trading, and other regulatory actions.  His experience includes working on some of the highest profile UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) cases, either as a prosecutor with the SFO or, more recently, in private practice, when he has acted for companies or individuals subject to SFO investigations or prosecutions.

“I am delighted to once again be working with Paul,” said Ms. Braamskamp.  “As a former criminal barrister and prosecutor he brings exceptional experience representing companies and individuals as well as having experience working across borders with multiple enforcement agencies.  His ability to instinctively understand how clients can best achieve their intended objectives brings exceptional value to our practice and the firm.”

Opened in 2015, the London office now has 20 lawyers and is increasingly regarded for its work in complex commercial litigation, investigations and international arbitration.

“Paul is an established and well-respected white collar crime lawyer and barrister in the London community with significant private practice and prosecutorial experience,” said Charlie Lightfoot, managing partner of the London office.  “London is a very competitive market and we’re pleased to attract top talent like Paul and further build our London platform and reputation.”

“I have crossed paths with various Jenner & Block lawyers during the course of my career and have seen the caliber of the firm’s work, which is top-notch,” said Mr. Feldberg.  “In addition to once again working with Christine Braamskamp, I am excited to bring my experience as a former SFO prosecutor and private practitioner to enhance the firm’s offerings and assist clients.”
