Willkie Farr targets compliance

Willkie Farr & Gallagher is spearheading a move into the compliance field after scooping two partners from Foley & Lardner.

Martin Weinstein and Robert Meyer will lead the new compliance and enforcement group, based within Willkie Farr’s rapidly expanding Washington DC office.

Weinstein, a former assistant US attorney in the fraud section of the Northern District of Georgia, will chair the practice. Working closely with Weinstein, Meyer will leverage off his extensive experience, which includes being a federal prosecutor for more than 10 years.
