Rappo Joins Steptoe in London

Patrick Rappo, the former joint head of Bribery and Corruption of the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO), has joined Steptoe’s London office.

Rappo will join Steptoe’s FCPA/Anti-Corruption and White-Collar Criminal Defense practices.

  “Patrick’s experience with the SFO, particularly in the fraud and corruption area, as well as his prior experience as a barrister handling criminal cases, makes him an excellent fit for Steptoe,” said Steptoe’s Roger Warin.

“Fraud and corruption cases have become increasingly multi-jurisdictional in character in recent years, and the UK is an important jurisdiction for such actions,” Warin said. “Patrick’s experience at the SFO in conjunction with our strong cross-border FCPA/anti-corruption and white-collar capabilities will provide our UK and international clients with unparalleled service in these matters.”

Rappo is a graduate of Oxford University (Pembroke College).

He was called to the bar in 1995 by the Honorable Society of Gray’s Inn, and practiced as a barrister in Chambers for 12 years before joining the SFO.

Rappo will be regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and Bar council.  He is fluent in French.
