Leading global firm has announced plans to launch Sydney and Perth offices this year.
Hogan Lovells has announced the launch of their Australian branches in both Sydney and Perth in July this year.
Nicky Lester and Tim Lester will join the Hogan Lovells from Allens to spearhead the banking and finance practices for the firm.
The team has clear plans to grow and build a strong Australian base that will complement the firm’s regional strength.
The firm hopes the move will deepen connectivity with Asia.
"Asia is predicted to continue to grow at two or three times the pace of the developed world over the next few years and we are now in an even stronger position to be a part of that exciting growth. Since January 2014 we have made 13 lateral partner hires in Asia, including five in Singapore. This demonstrates the importance of the region to Hogan Lovells and our commitment to continuing to build a market leading Asia practice," said Steve Immelt, CEO.
