London, October 1, 2015… Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global White Collar Practice with the addition of Jonathan Pickworth as a partner in its London office.
“Globally, we’re seeing a continuing trend of aggressive investigations and enforcement actions by criminal and civil enforcement authorities either in one country or, increasingly, in coordination with authorities in multiple jurisdictions,” said Darryl Lew, head of White & Case's Global White Collar Practice. “Jonathan’s arrival in London is an important step in expanding our global white collar practice. His impressive experience will be a valuable asset as we continue to strengthen our team and will further enhance our ability to assist our clients in both national and international white collar matters.”

He has considerable experience in relation to the handling of investigations by government agencies such as the Serious Fraud Office, the Financial Conduct Authority and HM Revenue & Customs. He joins White & Case from Dechert and brings more than 27 years of experience.
“The addition of Jonathan strengthens our global white collar capabilities and enhances the Firm’s position as a recognized leader in global investigations and corporate crime,” said John Reynolds, head of the London litigation practice. “Jonathan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience at a time when the demand for his skills is increasing.”
