Adam Brown focuses his practice on multijurisdictional investigations and has more than 15 years of experience advising on high-profile litigation, contentious compliance, and insolvency matters. The Legal 500 (2019) calls him "one of the finest solicitors around — a knowledgable lawyer with a fine sense of judgment" and "supremely calm under pressure."

Adam has particular experience in matters relating to fraud, asset tracing, financial litigation, insolvency, and corruption. He is frequently called upon to advise on injunctive relief as well as on investigations and inquiries by governmental authorities into compliance with relevant legislation and regulation. He has acted on the UK's first ever deferred prosecution agreement (involving the first indictment under s.7 UK Bribery Act), investigations into the collapse of BHS (the highest profile UK retail failure of recent decades), and what are believed to be the two largest frauds ever perpetrated on the London AIM market.

In 2012, Adam spent six months seconded to Goldman Sachs, working within the litigation and regulatory group and advising on a wide range of matters.

He was named a Legal Week "Rising Star" in 2016.
