July 9, 2018 — Laura Perkins, a partner in the firm’s Litigation practice, has been selected for inclusion in Global Investigation Review’s 2018 Women in Investigations special.

The list, released in June, profiles 100 remarkable female lawyers in the field of international investigations who were selected by GIR’s editorial team following an open nomination process.

Perkins’ profile noted that she spent 10 years conducting and supervising investigations with the U.S. Justice Department’s FCPA unit before she joined Hughes Hubbard in September 2017. “Serving the people of the U.S. as a prosecutor for the DOJ was an honor and a highlight in my career,” she said. “It is now incredibly rewarding for me to use the experience I gained at the department to help my clients as enforcement agencies around the globe increase their enforcement efforts.”

As a litigator at Hughes Hubbard, Perkins said she brings experience, know-how and intellectual curiosity, as well as rare insight into DOJ practices, policies and priorities, to the table. “I have spent most of my career investigating complex, multijurisdictional cases so I know how to conduct an investigation and how to avoid the many pitfalls that can occur in complex investigations,” she said. “I also bring with me a very experienced and multilingual team that has conducted investigations across the globe for U.S. and foreign clients.”
