DLA Piper appoints two new partners to litigation and regulatory group
DLA Piper has appointed Tony Katz and Alexander ‘Sam’ Millar as partners in the litigation and regulatory group. They joined the firm on 5 March 2014 from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe.
Katz and Millar are financial regulatory lawyers with significant experience in contentious, non-contentious and complex investigations. They regularly advise and represent financial services clients including banks, brokers, trading firms, funds, trade bodies and payment services and e-money firms, in relation to compliance issues, investigations and prosecutions.
Prior to joining the litigation team at Orrick in October 2011, they both worked at FSA-authorised financial derivatives trading company Liquid Capital Group, where Katz held the position of group head of compliance and legal adviser and Millar was general counsel.
Katz also worked for the FSA (now FCA) for a number of years as a manager in its retail policy and conduct risk division covering financial promotions: a priority area of risk for the FSA and a key element of its ‘treating customers fairly’ initiative.
At DLA Piper, they will work alongside non-contentious financial regulatory partner Michael McKee and the banking litigation team.
