Rahman Ravelli’s recent hiring of Zulfi Meerza and Dr. Angelika Hellweger was the subject of an article by Law360.
The piece detailed the reasons for Zulfi’s arrival as a senior associate and Angelika’s appointment as a legal director.
It explained that they have been brought to the firm at a time when it is seeing increasing demand from clients, some of whom are seeking advice on new and rapidly-developing issues such as cryptocurrency fraud, environmental, social and governance (ESG) disputes and sanctions.
Rahman Ravelli’s founder Aziz Rahman told Law360 that the firm had accelerated its expansion plans to meet the needs of clients; with many seeking help to assess their sanctions risk and exposure.
Zulfi has joined Rahman Ravelli after spending six years at the Serious Fraud Office; most of which he spent working as a senior investigative lawyer. He handled some of the agency’s most complex cases and can also manage the civil and regulatory proceedings that can run alongside a criminal investigation.
Angelika arrives at Rahman Ravelli having been counsel for over a decade at Austria’s top law firm. As a specialist in international, high-level economic crime investigations and large-scale commercial litigation, she is dual-qualified to practice Austrian and English law. She has gained a reputation for advising international conglomerates on compliance and regulatory matters in connection with ESG.
The appointments were also reported by The Law Society Gazette.
