Dechert litigation co-head Neil Gerrard has taken a lead role for the audit committee investigating allegations of corruption at FTSE 100 company Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation (ENRC).

Gerrard (pictured), who joined the US firm from DLA Piper earlier this year, began the work for the three-strong committee of non-executive directors – Gerhard Ammann, Sir Paul Judge and Roderick Thomson – at his former firm, and took the mandate with him on his move to Dechert.
