After eight years of litigating against big tech firms in antitrust and consumer protection disputes, Washington, D.C.’s first independently elected attorney general has moved to Hogan Lovells’ office to help launch a practice centered around representing clients in interactions with state attorneys general.

Karl Racine, who served as the managing partner of Venable before being elected to two terms as D.C.’s attorney general, will lead the new practice, composed of white-collar and government investigations lawyers.
