Alison Geary Named to Global Investigations Review's “40 Under 40” List

September 15, 2017

London-based Counsel Alison Geary has been named to Global Investigations Review's prestigious “40 Under 40” listing of the world's leading young investigations lawyers. The ranking honors rising stars in the field of cross-border and internal investigations who will help shape the future of this fast-evolving area of law.

Ms. Geary's practice focuses on white collar crime involving fraud, bribery, corruption, cartels and money laundering. She acts in Serious Fraud Office (SFO), Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and World Bank investigations. She has extensive experience in advising corporations and conducting internal investigations, often spanning many jurisdictions. She is also currently representing a number of individuals in the SFO/DOJ LIBOR and FX investigations. She has clients in the current SFO investigations connected with ENRC and Rolls Royce.

When asked by Global Investigations Review about the future of investigations, Ms. Geary reflects on the increasing co-operation between foreign prosecutors and the myriad of different jurisdictional considerations inherent in the majority of investigations. She counsels younger lawyers to always “get to grips” with the facts, as “having an excellent grasp of the facts will open doors later in the investigation.” Read the full interview.

Ms. Geary regularly provides commentary on white collar crime matters and has been quoted in publications such as The Times (London), The Guardian and Reuters
