The House Financial Services Committee is hiring a Senate lawyer with deep experience conducting complex investigations to help run its upcoming probe of Deutsche Bank AG, according to people briefed on the matter.

Bob Roach, who is expected to join the House committee’s staff under new Chairwoman Maxine Waters later this month, has spent more than two decades digging into dubious banking practices from his former perch with the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. Few prominent Wall Street firms have been left untouched by his work.
