Be Afraid Tiger, Elin’s Lawyer Is No Joke!

14May10

Elin Nordegren hired high powered London-based attorney Walter H. White, Jr.,  way back in January.  And although Tiger’s legal team is based out of New York and Florida, I think Elin may have the upper hand on this one!

Check out Mr. Walter H. White’s  distinguished resume:

Mr. White is head of the firm’s emerging markets transactions practice. His work consists of multinational securities transactions, international business and finance law issues, and complex litigation and related arbitration. He has represented clients in multibillion-dollar business transactions in the United States, Canada, Europe, throughout the Commonwealth of Independent States (C.I.S.), Asia and Africa. He has acted as an advisor to Central Banks, and financial regulatory agencies in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia on economic development and regulatory issues.

He has published books and articles on multinational business activity and lectured in North America, Europe, Central Asia and Africa, and is a regular commentator for the BBC on U.S. and international human rights and constitutional affairs
