Global Investigations Review (GIR) featured White Collar Defense & Investigations partner Leslie Caldwell in its Women in Investigations report highlighting remarkable women who are “achieving great things in a competitive and notoriously tough area of law.” The lawyers come from a variety of countries and backgrounds – from government enforcers to the next generation of investigators.

In the report, Caldwell told GIR, “I’ve always been attracted to investigations because I like to put together pieces of a puzzle. It’s interesting to try to find out not only what happened, but who’s being honest and who’s not. Every investigation is different, the facts are different, the motivations are different. Often there is also a government investigation so you have to think strategically about how best to protect your client’s interest while really getting to the bottom of the facts, and knowing that the government is lurking. I enjoy trying to get my clients who may be starting in a bad place into the best position they can possibly be, whatever the facts are.”

Caldwell has built a reputation as a trusted advisor regarding crisis management, policy development, and regulatory and enforcement matters. She focuses her practice on white-collar criminal defense, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other agency enforcement matters, internal board and corporate investigations, and crisis management.
