Kathleen Hamann

As a partner in the White Collar practice at White & Case, LLP, Kathleen offers her clients an outstanding depth of knowledge in dealing with a broad range of white collar enforcement and compliance issues. An internationally recognized authority in the field, her extensive experience of complex anticorruption cases spanning multijurisdictional borders is based on almost two decades of federal service to the United States Government.

During her tenure at the US Department of Justice (DOJ), Kathleen successfully prosecuted numerous high-profile criminal matters involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and designed and implemented the first FCPA self-monitorships and hybrid monitorships. Her casework across numerous industries also included the design and negotiation of the first ever simultaneous settlement by the DOJ, the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the Office of Foreign Assets Control and the UK Serious Fraud Office.

Prior to joining the DOJ, Kathleen also served as a Foreign Service Officer for the US Department of State, providing additional international exposure to a variety of jurisdictions, including Latin America and Germany. As the deputy director of anti-corruption and governance initiatives in the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, she developed and negotiated a range of international policies and commitments to combat international and transnational crime.
