As a Senior Associate at Edmonds Marshall McMahon, Jane is primarily focused on leading investigations and prosecutions of fraud, bribery and corruption, and other related dishonesty offences. Jane’s current work includes leading large-scale anti-corruption and fraud investigations and prosecutions of corporates and high net-worth individuals in the UK and abroad (on behalf of both UK and foreign entities).
Immediately prior to joining the firm, Jane was a Senior Lawyer at the Serious Fraud Office in the bribery and corruption division, working on the global investigation and prosecution of Rolls Royce; one of the largest bribery and corruption cases in UK history. As part of the small team focused specifically on the Energy Division (Oil and Gas) of the Rolls Royce case, Jane worked closely with:
- foreign governments in furthering the global investigation into the alleged bribery and corruption; and
- the US Department of Justice in securing charges against several former employees of Rolls Royce.
Other experience includes working as in-house legal counsel and commercial manager for a London-based technology company which included advising on multi-million dollar software licence agreements in Asia and the USA, and prior to that, working as a civil and criminal litigation lawyer (as both prosecution and defence) at a leading law firm in New Zealand, well-known for conducting several of New Zealand’s most publicised murder trials.
Jane was admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand in 2012, after graduating from the University of Otago, New Zealand with a Bachelor of Laws, a Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing) and a Diploma in Languages (German).
