Dentons Global Advisors has hired Susan Feilding as chief financial officer, based in its London office.

She joins DGA from L.E.K. Consulting, where she rose to the regional CFO for Europe and the Asia Pacific region position during a seven-year run.

Earlier, Feilding did a 10-year stint at Allens, the Australia-based international law firm, serving as national commercial manager and acting CFO.

She began her career as an auditor at EY.

Ed Reilly, CEO of DGA,noted that the independent advisory has significantly grown and evolved since its launch last July. “Bringing Susan on board as our CFO is a critical milestone as we continue to execute against the enormous opportunity in front of us,” he said.

Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, unveiled DGA to provide strategic counsel to clients dealing with challenges and opportunities in the commercial, reputation, financial, regulatory and governance areas. It retains a minority stake in DGA.

Reilly had headed FTI Consulting’s strategic communications arm.
