Allen & Overy (A&O) has once again turned to O’Melveny & Myers as it expands its Washington DC practice.
The firm has hired financial services regulatory lawyer Bill Satchell, who was a partner at O’Melveny & Myers. Satchell will work alongside the three financial services lawyers A&O poached from the US firm in July this year when it first launched its Washington office (29 June 2011).
Since July, A&O’s Washington office has expanded to 10 lawyers and now serves as a hub for the firm’s global regulatory network. Satchell is experienced across a range of financial services regulatory areas and adds a consumer finance and enforcement capability to the practice.
In a statement, A&O’s US financial services regulatory head Doug Landy said: “The financial services industry is becoming an increasingly global one – significant players in the market need a top international law firm that can advise them wherever they operate.
“We’re one of the only financial services regulatory practices that offers the combination of a top-tier US team with extensive top-tier capability in Europe and Asia.”
