City white collar partners tip former FBI deputy general counsel as new SFO director | Legal Week

With chief operating officer Mark Thompson installed as interim director of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), a new name has emerged as a potential successor to David Green QC, who stepped down after six years at the watchdog’s helm last week.

Three City white collar partners with links to the SFO, including one former SFO lawyer, have suggested that Lisa Osofsky – EMEA leader and head of investigations at regulatory compliance company Exiger and former deputy GC at the FBI – could be in line for the role.
