Kyle Phillips, director of corporate and financial crime, said:
"Fieldfisher is proud and excited to be part of this initiative, for which there was a clear need within the global legal community.
"The world has never been smaller from a law enforcement perspective and it is important that legal professionals help serve the interests of international justice by cooperating with like-minded colleagues across borders."
Foley partner David Simon, one of the founding members of the Concilium Network, said:
“We are delighted to be in a position to offer clients access to this impressive group of experienced, talented, English-speaking, client service-oriented compliance, investigations, and defense lawyers."
“We live in a truly global enforcement environment, and our multinational clients are demanding global solutions. This Network allows us to meet that demand.”
