The bank has promoted current senior lawyer Stephanie Pagni to a newly created role as global litigation head and put current litigation and investigations director Jonathan Peddie in charge of the beefed-up global financial crime unit.

The group will work closely with compliance and risk in response to the growing pressure on the bank from the growth in internal and white-collar investigations.

See Barclays - Bob Hoyt became Group General Counsel in November 2013, responsible for all legal issues across Barclays.

Between 2006 and 2009, Bob served as General Counsel of the US Department of the Treasury, where he was the Chief Legal Officer of the department and a senior policy advisor to Secretary Henry M. Paulson, Jr.  Prior to that Bob served at the White House where he was Special Assistant and Associate Counsel to President George W. Bush. In that position, Bob was responsible for a variety of legal issues, including investigations and litigation, as well as legal and policy matters involving several executive branch departments and components of the Executive Office of the President.
