Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Commercial Litigation Practice with the addition of Kami Haeri and Alexandre Kiabski as partners in Paris.

"In recent years we have seen a rise in the number of large, cross-border disputes, and from all indications that is set to continue with the ongoing economic uncertainty and attendant increase in contentious work," said White & Case partner Glenn Kurtz, Head of the Global Commercial Litigation Practice. "The addition of two partners with broad commercial disputes and investigations experience will strengthen the Paris office capabilities to serve clients at the highest level on the full range of complex and cross-border contentious matters."

Kami and Alexandre advise French and international clients on commercial disputes, class actions, white collar crime, investigations and compliance across a wide range of industries including financial services, technology, energy, mining and metals, media and manufacturing. They have extensive trial experience as well as knowledge of the French market through various engagements with French think tanks, Bar associations and the preparation of reports commissioned by the French Ministry of Justice. Kami and Alexandre join White & Case from Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, where Kami was a partner and chair of the commercial litigation and white collar practices and Alexandre was counsel.

"The addition of Kami and Alexandre will add further expertise and market profile to our commercial dispute capabilities,” said White & Case partner Markus Langen, Regional Section Head, EMEA Disputes. “Both partners have experience advising on high-end and complex cross-border disputes as well as high-profile corporate and individual crime representations in and out of court, international compliance and cross-border investigations." 

White & Case partner Diane Lamarche said: "The addition of Kami and Alexandre in Paris will further grow our unique and full range top tier disputes offering in France and, in particular, our commercial disputes capabilities, building on the strong commercial litigation reputation we have established in recent years."

White & Case partner and Vice Chair Oliver Brettle said: "Dispute resolution, including white collar, continues to be a priority practice for the Firm. Kami and Alexandre’s arrival follows our continued investment through laterals and promotions to further strengthen our disputes capabilities in EMEA. The strength of White & Case globally and the interconnectedness of our offices make us ideally placed to advise clients on their large and complex cross border contentious matters."
