Andy McGregor to join Allen & Overy’s Litigation practice

Allen & Overy continues to invest in its London Litigation and Investigations practice through the hire of civil fraud partner Andy McGregor. Andy joins from RPC, where he was Head of Civil Fraud. 

Andy has almost two decades of experience handling complex, high value international litigation. He has in-depth knowledge of handling fraud and financial disputes representing banks and other financial institutions, corporates and high-net-worth individuals.

He has built a prominent litigation practice, which has included some of the largest civil fraud cases before the English High Court in recent years. He is also recognised as a leading civil fraud litigator by a number of the leading legal directories.

Andy’s hire reinforces A&O’s market-leading position for handling the most complex domestic and cross-border disputes in the civil fraud arena. His arrival follows the recent announcement that finance litigation partner Michael Godden is also joining A&O.

Commenting on Andy’s appointment, Head of London Litigation and Investigations, Calum Burnett said: “Andy is a civil fraud litigation heavyweight who has built a fantastic practice. His expertise will be invaluable to our clients in helping them navigate high value, high stakes fraud litigation.

“I’m looking forward to working closely with him.”

Karen Seward, Global Head of Litigation, said: “Having top tier civil fraud capability is a key component of a premier London practice, ensuring we can provide our clients with holistic solutions across all areas of litigation.

“The continued attractiveness of the English courts and the steep increase in our civil fraud cases has reinforced the importance of having real strength in this area, and Andy is one of the very best fraud lawyers in the market. His track record of acting on some of the most significant civil fraud cases in recent years speaks for itself. I am delighted to welcome him to A&O.”

Andy McGregor commented: “I’m excited to join one of the most pre-eminent London and global litigation practices. A&Os international footprint provides a great platform to support clients in a market in which civil fraud activity is at record levels.”

A&O’s global litigation practice comprises more than 560 lawyers across the U.S., EMEA and Asia Pacific. In addition to Michael Godden, other recent appointments to the Litigation & Investigations group include the hire of partner Susanna Charlwood. Furthermore, A&O’s wider Litigation practice has hired more than 10 laterals over the past year in the U.S., Europe, Asia Pacific and the UK, as well as promoting six internal partners.
