Second Partner appointment announced at Foot Anstey

Foot Anstey has announced the arrival of Sonya Zywko as Partner to drive the law firm’s contentious financial services regulatory practice.

Sonya’s career has spanned private practice, a regulator and a leading investment bank and includes almost 20 years at Norton Rose Fulbright where she specialised in financial services regulatory enforcement and related litigation.

On joining the firm, Sonya said: “I’m thrilled to be joining a talented and innovative team at Foot Anstey. The firm is known for being forward-thinking and I’m really excited to bring my knowledge and experience to help drive the practice forwards into the contentious regulatory arena.”

James Gliddon, Partner and Head of Banking and Lender Disputes, said: “Sonya’s reputation and experience is superb. During her career Sonya has specialised in significant financial services regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings, as well as advising on the conduct of internal investigations and large-scale commercial disputes. As we see the growing impact that the regulators are having across all of our clients' sectors, we are certain that she will be pivotal in helping our regulated clients with their risk management, investigations and related litigation.”

The news comes hot-on-the-heels of the announcement that Sam Elworthy joined Foot Anstey as a Partner in its Commercial team.
