New York, NY (February 22, 2022) --- Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP today announced the addition of Nanyi Kaluma, who has joined as a national partner in the Firm’s Litigation Department and as a member of the White Collar Defense and Compliance, Investigations & Enforcement Groups. She is based in Willkie’s Brussels office. Nanyi was previously counsel at Allen & Overy LLP. Earlier in her career, she was an associate at Willkie, based in the Firm’s Brussels and New York offices.
Nanyi’s practice is focused on advising corporate clients, financial institutions and investment banks in relation to a wide range of criminal, regulatory and commercial disputes.

Nanyi also regularly represents clients in all types of commercial disputes before arbitral and judicial courts.
“Nanyi is a well-regarded practitioner with a strong track record of handling cross-border disputes – whether criminal, regulatory or commercial – across numerous industries and geographies,” said Peter Burrell, partner and head of Willkie’s Litigation, Compliance, Investigations & Enforcement and White Collar Defense Practice Groups in London.
