RAHMAN RAVELLI’S expanding London operation has attracted Christopher Walton as the latest high-calibre addition to its specialist fraud team.
The business crime specialists, who have bases in Halifax and the capital, recruited Walton as a senior fraud solicitor in response to their growing workload.
Walton has significant experience of managing high-profile cases involving white collar crime, complex fraud, money laundering, regulatory issues, confiscation and the Bribery Act.
Rahman Ravelli was attracted by his pedigree, his work at a number of other major city practices and his success rate in some of the UK’s most involved business crime cases.
Aziz Rahman, founder of Rahman Ravelli, said: “The expansion of our London operation is a great credit to the existing solicitors we have in the capital. They have represented the company and their clients excellently and will continue to do so.
“Thanks to the company’s success it became necessary to seek more high-calibre solicitors who can boast a strong track record.
“Christopher certainly falls into that category. As we look to further build on the growth Rahman Ravelli has enjoyed in recent years, I believe that Christopher will complement the high levels of expertise we already offer our clients.
“His appointment will not, I believe, be the last one we make for our London operation in the coming months.’’
Walton comes to Rahman Ravelli with a reputation for strong legal analysis, expert case management and outstanding communication skills. .
He said: “It is very pleasing to be arriving at Rahman Ravelli at a time when the firm is expanding and gaining great rankings in all the legal guides that matter.
“From the moment I began talks with people at the firm, it was clear that their priority is to do whatever is possible to give each and every one of their clients the strongest chance of success. That was very attractive to me.’’
