Pierce Atwood LLP Adds White Collar Litigator to DC Office: Kathleen M. Hamann Joins Firm as Partner

Pierce Atwood’s regional growth continues with the addition of Kathleen M. Hamann, an internationally recognized authority in the field of white collar enforcement and compliance matters. Drawing on her nearly 20 years of service to the federal government, in roles at the US Department of Justice and Department of State, Kathleen helps clients navigate the complexities of U.S. and transnational criminal liability and multijurisdictional government investigations.  

Kathleen represents clients in transnational matters, conducts global risk assessments, designs compliance programs, and addresses multijurisdictional investigations that require deep knowledge of conflicting national laws. She also represents clients in enforcement actions by the multilateral development banks, proceedings conducted under principles of international law. She also serves as an international compliance monitor for the African Development Bank. 

David E. Barry, Pierce Atwood’s managing partner notes, “We are pleased that Kate has chosen to bring her talent and expertise to Pierce Atwood’s DC office. Her practice complements, expands, and strengthens the firm's current areas of expertise and will be very valuable to our clients.”

Before joining Pierce Atwood Kathleen was a partner in the Washington, DC office of White & Case LLP. Kathleen received her J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center and a B.A. from Carleton College.
