FTI Consulting has appointed Bella von Bohlen to its crisis and litigation practice. She takes up a Managing Director role in the practice’s strategic communications segment, based in London.

The move will see Von Bohlen working within a multidisciplinary strategic communications, policy and public affairs team across Europe. She will also work in collaboration with colleagues in the US, Asia, Australia and Latin America, advising corporate clients and law firms on international litigation and dispute resolution mandates.

A financial crime specialist, Von Bohlen joins the litigation wing from Deutsche Bank, where she served as counsel in the anti-bribery and corruption team and was responsible for compliance training across the business. She was previously a barrister at QEB Hollis Whiteman Chambers, specialising in financial crime.

FTI’s UK Litigation Communications Lead, Rob Mindell, commented, “Corporate clients and law firms are increasingly calling on our services for reputation management throughout high-profile disputes. Bella’s skill set will further deepen and expand our capabilities in complex cases of financial crime. She joins a team well-recognised for work in this and other areas, including competition, employment, IP, tax and commercial disputes.”

The causes of litigation are evolving quickly – in particular in response to the rise of ecologically-centred promises by leading corporations. According to recent FTI research, misleading product claims, ESG disclosure and funding of group actions are all factors that increase the likelihood of environmental disputes in Europe. As the firm looks to bolster its offering in this regard, Von Bohlen is the second recent arrival at FTI’s European offices – with Leonor Díaz-Córdova having also arrived as Managing Director at FTI’s Madrid office in March 2023.

Speaking on her new role, Von Bohlen added, “I am excited to join FTI Consulting amid a rapidly evolving communications landscape for litigation and disputes. Over the course of my career, I have learned how critical good communications are to the successful management of regulation, investigations and litigation. I look forward to supporting our clients through complex challenges.”
