Cogence Search interviews Natasha Harrison
Natasha started her career at the Bar, at 4 Pump Court Chambers before joining the legacy firm Wild Sapte as an associate in their litigation and arbitration practice. Shortly after the firm’s merger with Denton Hall, Natasha stepped into the realms of US firm with a three-year stint at Weil Gotshal Manges LLP. Her longstanding partner career commenced with Bingham McCutchen (whose collapse in 2014 was much publicised). In 2013 she received an offer to take up the reins of Boies Schiller’s London office as their managing partner.
Natasha is recognised as a leading banking litigator by Legal 500 and Chambers UK (Band 1); by Super Lawyers, Who’s Who and Lawdragon as a leading commercial litigator. She won Best in Litigation at the Euromoney Women in Business Law Awards (2015), was named one of Financial News’s “Rising Stars of Legal Services” in 2013 and The Lawyer’s “Hot 100 2011” for banking litigation. Ms. Harrison has been described as "exceptionally talented," as “incredibly commercial for a litigator,” with an “unparalleled ability” to turn a client’s thoughts into a “cogent argument.”
Natasha continues to practice full time as a litigator, whilst undertaking management responsibilities and building out the London office of Boies, Schiller & Flexner.
