Global Investigations Review has profiled 100 women in the field of investigations in a special feature, including two Norton Rose Fulbright partners in London, Ruth Cowley and Pamela Reddy.
Global Investigations Review’s prestigious Women in Investigations feature highlights the contributions and achievement of remarkable women in the field, including lawyers and other practitioners from across the world. Following an open nomination process, the final ranking was compiled by the editorial team of the magazine.
Ruth Cowley is a dispute resolution and litigation lawyer whose experience includes investigations (internal and external) into regulatory and corruption issues, advice on corruption and fraud issues, compliance advice and international litigation including fraud claims.

Ruth has also been recognised as one of the world's leading young investigations specialists by Global Investigations Review in its 40 under 40 feature (2014).

She acts in the most high profile and media sensitive cases and also represents those investigated and charged with non-fraud general crime. Pamela advises companies and individuals on all aspects of business, corporate, financial and white collar crime. She has extensive experience in handling complex fraud, corruption, market abuse, and money laundering cases as well as internal investigations and financial services investigations.
