Pamela Reddy



Pamela Reddy is a white-collar crime and investigations lawyer based in London.

With more than 20 years' experience, Pamela is able to advise on the full spectrum of criminal and regulatory law and covers all stages of investigations, from the initial internal investigation and potential self-reporting, through to interviews under caution, all the way to defending clients in jury trials. She has also worked on several high-profile public inquiries  and advised individuals facing sexual misconduct allegations, which surfaced amid the #MeToo movement.

Pamela is now a first-choice counsel to global companies and senior executives on domestic and cross-border fraud, bribery and corruption, market abuse and money laundering investigations. She frequently acts on some of the most serious, complex and high-profile cases involving the UK and foreign regulators, including the SFO, NCA, CPS, FCA and DOJ.

Prior to joining the firm, she led a team at a boutique criminal law firm, advising on high-profile and media-sensitive general criminal matters and white collar crime.

She is widely recognized as one of the UK's most distinguished white collar crime lawyers.
