As co-chair of Davis Polk’s Global Enforcement and Investigations Group, Angela Burgess’s practice focuses on representing companies as well as individuals in matters involving allegations of violations of anti-bribery laws, insider trading, money laundering, criminal tax fraud, antitrust, fraud and other financial crimes. She also routinely advises boards of directors, audit committees and companies on corporate governance and compliance matters, including designing strategies, policies and procedures to mitigate risk.
Ms. Burgess has built a reputation for representing companies in connection with some of the largest SEC and DOJ FCPA investigations in recent years, including Telia Company AB and Siemens.
Many of Ms. Burgess’s most successful matters have not resulted in public charges, though, and therefore remain confidential.
Ms. Burgess also serves, on a pro bono basis, as Counsel to the NY State Justice Task Force.
Ms. Burgess received her J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School and her B.A., summa cum laude, from Georgetown University.
