Greg Lascelles Joins Covington’s European Dispute Resolution Practice

September 5, 2016

LONDONGreg Lascelles has joined Covington as a partner in the European Dispute Resolution practice resident in the firm’s London office. 

Mr. Lascelles has a broad litigation and arbitration practice covering a variety of industry sectors, with a particular focus on financial services. He advises hedge funds, private equity houses, asset managers, investment banks, brokerage houses, entrepreneurs and major public companies in the financial services and private equity sectors, and has significant experience in securities litigation as well as antitrust litigation.

In addition, Mr. Lascelles advises on regulatory investigations and enforcement concerning market abuse, systems and controls investigations and permission removals, plus partnership, shareholder, director, trustee and bondholder disputes involving unfair prejudice, restructuring and creditor priorities, as well as substantial contractual disputes.

Alex Leitch and Jeremy Wilson, co-chairs of Covington’s European Dispute Resolution Practice, commented: “Financial services remains an active sector that attracts a lot of demand from our clients across a variety of disciplines, including antitrust litigation, commercial litigation and regulatory disputes. Having recently bolstered the group with the arrival of Carlo Kostka, former co-head of Group Legal at UniCredit, we feel that Greg’s arrival will be another welcome addition to an already vibrant practice.”

Mr. Lascelles added: “At Covington, dispute resolution and regulatory expertise go hand in hand, which, to my mind, is the best way to ensure clients receive the right advice that is forward-looking and holistic by nature. I am very excited to join this growing team and look forward to further building my practice at Covington.”  

Mr. Lascelles received his LLB in English and French Laws from King’s College in London and the Pantheon-Sorbonne in Paris in 1995, and was admitted as a solicitor in 2003. He speaks English, French and Spanish.
