David’s experience is partially advisory work, including corporate investigations, as well as compliance audits and litigation.

Pieter van Uchelen, head of the firm’s Amsterdam office, commented: “We are excited to welcome David to our team and are eager to see what his wide variety of corporate crime and compliance experience will bring to our investigations practice more broadly. David’s expertise crosses over a number of the firm’s key sectors and is directly in line with the focus of the Amsterdam office.”

Hans-Herman Aldernhoff, head of the firm’s dispute resolution group, continued: “David’s arrival complements those of our existing international partners, who advise right across the broader dispute resolution practice”.
