Pam Shearing is a solicitor whose practice focuses on white-collar defence, global investigations, and corporate governance and compliance.
She has extensive experience of leading teams advising global companies and individuals on the full spectrum of corporate governance and financial regulation, including working with international corporations on multi-jurisdictional complex investigations; and advising on the implications of international anti-corruption legislation.
She has significant experience of reviewing, designing and implementing corporate governance and compliance programs, and providing workshops and training to senior compliance professionals, drawing upon both her experience of working in-house in the Legal and Compliance team of the Head Office of a FTSE 30 company, but also her years working in private practice. Pam also advises companies on the implications of the Modern Slavery Act and human rights legislation.
Pam has a unique combined background of both private practice and in-house experience. Prior to joining Fulcrum in 2017, she spent over ten years working in both private practice (both at a Magic Circle firm in their London and Brussels offices, and at a leading US law firm) and also in-house at the Head Office of a FTSE 30 leading company.
She has also been engaged throughout her legal career in related graduate academic studies, research, and teaching in international law. In 2016, she completed her PhD during which she spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar and Visiting Fellow at Harvard University. She has taught for several years at leading London universities and currently teaches undergraduates at King’s College London.
