Press release - People March 2019

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright today announced that Sharon Oded has joined its Amsterdam and London offices as a regulatory, compliance and investigations partner.

Sharon advises clients across all sectors on corporate compliance and criminal enforcement. His practice focuses on helping multinational corporations and financial institutions mitigate their regulatory compliance risks and respond to corporate incidents and crises.

Sharon has a wealth of experience in dealing with highly sensitive, multijurisdictional investigative matters concerning anti-bribery and corruption, fraud, competition and antitrust, export control and economic sanctions, anti-money laundering, data protection and cybersecurity. He advises corporations, board members and senior executives on cross-border investigations, criminal defence, regulatory compliance and related civil litigation. Sharon also supports clients with global compliance risk assessments, enhancement of global corporate compliance programmes and due diligence reviews in relation to mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures.

Sharon is professor of Corporate Compliance and Enforcement at the Rotterdam Institute of Law and Economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. He was formerly a research fellow at the Center for Law, Business and the Economy at the University of California, Berkeley. Sharon is also the Chairman of the Compliance Chamber, Institute for Financial Crime (IFFC) and a steering committee member of the Cambridge Forums: The Global Compliance Officers’ Forum.

Gerry Pecht, Norton Rose Fulbright’s Global Head of Dispute Resolution and Litigation, commented:

“Businesses face an ever-widening array of civil, criminal and regulatory risk, and Sharon can help our clients navigate complex regulatory and compliance issues, investigations and litigation. He possesses outstanding regulatory compliance and enforcement knowledge and experience, complementing the strength of our global offering.”

Sharon commented:

“Multinational corporations face increasing global compliance and enforcement challenges, which require sophisticated global responses and solutions. It’s an exciting opportunity for me to join this global team and have the scale, capacity and the platform required to provide a full and optimal service to clients.”

Norton Rose Fulbright’s regulatory, compliance and investigations practice provides clients with a complete and connected international service to assist them with the legal, procedural, governance and reputational aspects of regulatory and compliance issues, investigations and litigation. In the last two years, this practice has expanded in Europe with the arrival of Alexander Cappel (Frankfurt), Jeffrey Cottle (London and Washington, DC), Pamela Reddy (London) and Marion Roquette-Pfister (Paris).

Both the Transatlantic Legal Awards and the British Legal Awards named Norton Rose Fulbright the “Investigations Team of the Year” in 2018. The 2018 FT Innovative Lawyers Europe report also highly commended the firm’s investigations team.
