Meet White-Collar Crime Young Practitioners, a new international network dedicated to lawyers battling corporate malfeasance
A group of nine lawyers, three apiece from firms in Switzerland, France and the USA, have joined forces to establish White-Collar Crime Young Practitioners, a network dedicated to supporting young lawyers engaged in this challenging branch of criminal law.
“WCCYP is a network for young white-collar crime practitioners from leading law firms who are focused on government investigations and related litigation as well as compliance issues involving US, French and Swiss interests,” announced the network in a statement coinciding with its launch. “Its objective is to bring together young attorneys based in the three countries to share ideas and experiences, report on current trends, and develop a network of experts in this field.”
The nine founders are Shawn Crowley (Kaplan Hecker & Fink), Aymeric Dumoulin (Debevoise & Plimpton), Margot Laporte (Miller & Chevalier), Geoffroy Goubin (Bougartchev Moyne Associés), Ophelia Claude (Antonin Lévy & Associés), Gildas Robert (Advant Altana), Simone Nadelhofer (Lalive), Nicolas Herren (Pestalozzi) and Clara Poglia (Schellenberg Wittmer).
The criteria for membership of WCCYP is to be a criminal-law attorney under 45 years of age from a leading law firm who’s been practicing in white-collar crime for more than five years. Membership is not restricted to the three countries mentioned above, with the founders actively inviting applicants from new jurisdictions.
