If you see Hogan & Hartson partners all driving Jags, it may be to show solidarity with a firm client. That’s because Hogan was awarded the right to help Ford Motor Co. sell off its two big luxury car brands, Jaguar and Land Rover. Partner Jonathan Coppin, who joined the firm last year from Shearman & Sterling to head the capital markets practice in London, will take the lead on the transaction. The deal is estimated to be worth around $1.5 billion. Hogan landed the work over past advisers Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and London’s Slaughter and May. Hogan already lists Ford as a client and now may be able to thank the company’s general counsel, David Leitch, for the selection. Leitch was a partner in Hogan’s Washington office before joining Ford in 2005. Earlier this summer, Ford started the auction process for Jaguar and Land Rover. Bidders include One Equity Partners, Tata Motors, TPG, and Ripplewood. Hogan Chairman J. Warren Gorrell Jr. had no comment.
