Macfarlanes announces appointment of Neill Blundell as head of corporate crime and investigations
Neill will focus on corporate criminal investigations and compliance advice, particularly in relation to regulatory issues, anti-bribery and corruption and the Criminal Finances Act.
Head of litigation Iain Mackie comments: “We look forward to welcoming Neill to the team. He is a leading figure in the market with an impressive track record and diverse skillset which will be valuable additions to our practice.”
Senior Partner Charles Martin adds: “The increasing move in the regulatory sector towards the criminalisation of misconduct, and the introduction of criminal offences across a broad spectrum of regulation affecting our corporate clients – such as bribery, the Criminal Finances Act and environmental matters – makes this area of work a really important and valuable one to our clients. Neill will be doing advisory and investigations work as well as litigation and prosecutions working with our existing teams in related fields.”
