K&L Gates has hired Addleshaw Goddard corporate crime chief Elizabeth Robertson into its equity partnership.
Robertson joined Addleshaws’ fraud and regulatory practice in May 2007 from litigation boutique Peters & Peters. Hers was seen as a high level appointment intended to boost the firm’s white collar crime expertise.
In 2010 Robertson represented the three Pakistani cricket players, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt, who were subsequently jailed for their part in a betting scam
Robertson left Addleshaws in December, sources close to the firm said, but it was not until this month that she secured a place in the equity partnership at K&L Gates.
It is understood that she will be the first partner in K&L Gates’ white collar crime and criminal defence practice.
Calls for comment from K&L Gates were not returned.
