International law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner is ranked as one of the top investigations practices in the 2021 edition of the Global Investigations Review (GIR) 100, an annual guide to the world’s leading cross-border investigations practices. Based on extensive research and vetting, GIR select 100 firms from around the world are able to handle sophisticated cross-border government-led and internal investigations.

“I’m delighted that BCLP’s Investigations Practice is ranked as runners-up to the GIR30 this year. Our Global Investigations Practice continues to grow and BCLP’s recognition by GIR is a great testament to the high standards and quality representation that our team delivers consistently to our clients worldwide” commented Partner Polly James, co-leader of the firm’s Financial Services Disputes & Investigations practice.

The publication noted a number of recent high-profile BCLP wins for the investigations practice, and highlighted top team members in the firm’s London, Washington, Paris, Moscow, Dubai and New York offices. GIR notes the firm’s “strong presence” in Russia which it says is rare for a major investigation firm. It also reports on BCLP’s “strong white-collar defence team” which has been bolstered this year by recent hires including former Assistant US Attorney, Andrey Spektor, and former Kirkland & Ellis and SFO Investigative Lawyer, Sarah Klein.

Leading BCLP lawyers referenced include: Polly James, Mark Srere, Andrew Tuson, Andrey Spektor, Sarah Klein, Constantin Achillas, Anton Gusev, Alexander Erasov, Mukul Chawla QC and Raza Mithani.
