Cadwalader Named Among GIR 100, Annual Guide to World’s Leading Cross-Border Investigations Practices

October 27, 2020

Cadwalader was once again named to the GIR 100, Global Investigation Review’s annual guide to the world’s leading cross-border investigations practices. The selected firms represent those that are best suited to handle sophisticated cross-border government-led and internal investigations and related settlement negotiations or prosecutions of corporates and individuals.

Cadwalader’s 2020 GIR 100 profile lauds the firm’s “wealth of experience in advising large financial institutions and pharmaceutical companies in white-collar matters in the country (U.S.) and over the past year has added significant muscle to its London offering.”

The profile also features some of the firm’s recent high-profile representations: a former Deutsche Bank trader involved in the SFO’s long-running investigation into manipulation of the EU interbank offered rate; Blue Fame Medical, a healthcare logistics and medical supply company embroiled in politically sensitive disputes and investigations involving supply contracts for coronavirus relief supplies; and Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign manager.

Cadwalader’s New York, Washington, D.C., Charlotte and London-based White Collar Defense and Investigations team represents financial institutions, investment firms, broker-dealers, corporations, boards of directors, audit committees, non-governmental organizations, and individuals in criminal, civil, and administrative proceedings, trials, and appeals. The group has extensive expertise advising clients on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act 2010, the Bank Secrecy Act, the Proceeds of Crime Act, the False Claims Act, and the Commodity Exchange Act, as well as global sanctions, money laundering and asset forfeiture laws.

The GIR 100 research methodology is based on a detailed questionnaire that is completed by firms on multiple aspects of their investigations and white-collar crime practices.
