Side by side - one year in, how is Hogan Lovells shaping up within the Am Law 100?
In early March the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center outside Washington DC teemed with hundreds of lawyers from Hogan Lovells. The firm was holding its first global partnership conference, and one of the hotel’s ballrooms had been turned into a marketplace with stations representing each of the firm’s 40 offices. At each station, partners were on hand to provide information about the office. The stations also offered local treats to entice lawyers to linger. “The Paris station had champagne, the Northern California station had wine and the Beijing station had baijiu,” recounts Warren Gorrell, the firm’s co-chief executive. “But it wasn’t all alcohol,” he adds quickly. (The Brussels station had chocolate.) The event, while certainly cliche, was nonetheless important for the 2,400-lawyer firm, which was created in May 2010 through a combination of Washington DC-based Hogan & Hartson and London’s Lovells.
One year after Hogan and Lovells paired up, the firms are figuring out how to turn two into one. Drew Combs reports
