Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has recruited the Serious Fraud Office’s (SFO) joint-head of bribery and corruption Ben Morgan.
Morgan will join the magic circle firm as a partner in its corporate crime and global investigations practice.
He joined the SFO in 2013 after working at Norton Rose Fulbright.
Highlights during Morgan’s career include his involvement in the SFO’s first deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) in 2015.
In his role, he issued a warning to lawyers that the body would continue to prosecute companies for wrongdoing despite a successful first DPA.
Freshfields has four corporate crime and investigations partners in London.
Morgan is just the second lateral ever made into the firm’s dedicated practice team.
