LONDON
,
May 30, 2012
/PRNewswire/ -- Winston & Strawn LLP announced
today that Justin McClelland MBE is joining the firm as a partner in its leading
global commercial litigation practice and will be based in
London
. The arrival of
McClelland is the latest in a string of high profile appointments for Winston both
in
London
and globally.
McClelland who joins Winston & Strawn from Milbank LLP, has a strong track
record of advising on complex and high-value disputes on behalf of blue chip
companies and financial institutions. He has extensive experience in the area of
financial regulatory investigations involving bodies including the Financial
Services Authority, the Office of Fair Trading, the Serious Fraud Office, the
European Commission and the US Department of Justice.
Prior to commencing his commercial legal career with Slaughter and May,
Justin served in the Army Legal Services in which he reached the rank of
Lieutenant Colonel advising at the highest level of government, in several
operational environments. In 1998, Justin was appointed a Member of the
Order of the British Empire (MBE), in recognition of his work advising on
sensitive military operations.
McClelland is the first of a number of new hires who will be joining the
London
office of Winston's acclaimed global commercial disputes team led by Michael
Madden, the former managing partner of Ashurst's dispute resolution
department, who joined Winston and Strawn in
January 2012
.
Madden said: "I am delighted that a lawyer with the calibre and experience of
Justin will be joining the
London
team. His background in financial disputes and
regulatory issues coupled with his broader litigation knowledge and experience
will add to the firm's growing dispute resolution capabilities as well as
supporting our mission to work for clients on a wide range of litigation needs."
This is the latest in a string of high profile appointments for Winston in
London
and globally, most recent being the hire of 22 litigation partners from Dewey &
LeBoeuf, led by influential trial attorney and global litigation head Jeffrey
Kessler, without doubt one of the most high profile and respected litigation
practitioners. The Dewey hires also include Peter Crowther who will become a
partner in the
London
office of Winston & Strawn. Crowther has significant
experience in defending companies in a wide range of national and
international enforcement proceedings. Other notable hires over the past few
months include: Robb Adkins, the former head of the President's national
Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force, based in
Los Angeles
and
San
Francisco
, Alfred Fabricant based in
New York
who joined from Dickstein
Shapiro, Lawrence Drucker in
New York
, and Michael J. Scheer, in
New York
and
Los Angeles
to name just a few.
Commenting on the new appointment Tom Benz, Managing Partner of the
London
office said: "We expect to continue growing the firm in those practices
and geographic locations where there is the greatest client demand for our
services. The addition of these prominent lawyers will further strengthen the
firms litigation practice but on a global basis."
