Australian lawyer heads to Hong Kong after London transfer

Hogan Lovells has recruited a new partner in London who will head next year to Hong Kong.

Antonia Croke will join Hogan Lovells in London in January from fellow global law firm Ashurst, where she was a senior associate. She also previously worked at Clayton Utz and Gilbert + Tobin in Sydney.

Hogan Lovells said that its litigation practice has advised, often on bet-the-company litigation, 50 of the Fortune 100, 34 of the FTSE 100, and 17 of the DAX 30. Hong Kong is an important and growing centre for commercial dispute resolution, it said.

“With extensive experience in complex, cross-border litigation and investigations, including contractual, corporate, employment, insolvency, and fraud related disputes, Antonia will allow the Hong Kong team to meet the increasing demand from global clients for strategic, commercial-minded litigation counsel in the Asia-Pacific region,” the firm said.

Michael Davidson, the firm’s global head of litigation, said that Croke is a dynamic, driven, and impressive individual whose arrival boosts the firm’s offering and enables it to respond to the growing demand for high-quality litigation counsel in Asia.
