White & Case Expands White Collar and Litigation Practices
Global law firm White & Case LLP has added partner Kenneth Caruso in New York and a seven-lawyer team, including partners Michel Beaussier and Isabelle Fenayrou-Degas, from the French specialist white collar firm Beaussier & Associés in Paris. The move expands the firm’s cutting edge white collar and litigation capabilities.
According to the press release at the firm’s site, George Terwilliger, head of White & Case’s Global White Collar Practice and former Deputy Attorney General of the United States was quoted as saying: “We are delighted to welcome Ken, Michel and Isabelle, as well as the entire Beaussier & Associés team. These lawyers are a great addition for our clients who increasingly need the benefit of experienced judgment to address global investigations, enforcement actions and related civil claims.”
Caruso has over 30 years of private and public legal experience. He joins White & Case from Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, where he was a partner in the firm’s litigation and international business practice in New York. Caruso’s practice focuses on civil and criminal litigation and investigations involving international and transnational matters, primarily for financial institutions both in the United States and worldwide.
In Paris, partners Michel Beaussier and Isabelle Fenayrou-Degas join White & Case and bring with them five additional lawyers comprising the white collar and litigation boutique Beaussier & Associés. With their arrival, the Paris dispute resolution team now stands at 10 partners, six counsel and more than 30 associates.
“Michel and Isabelle and their team command a high reputation in the French legal market as leading practitioners in the white collar, criminal law and contentious regulatory fields, advising leading French and international banks,” said John Willems, head of White & Case’s Disputes Practice in Western Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We could see immediately the parallels between their business and our own: we share many of the same clients and their arrival brings specialist expertise in this increasingly important area for multinational businesses.”
Beaussier is a senior white collar lawyer, with more than 30 years of experience. He has a leading reputation in the French legal market for criminal and bank regulatory matters.
Fenayrou-Degas is a highly respected white collar lawyer who represents banks and corporations in criminal and regulatory proceedings.
