Hogan Lovells gears up to merge with South Africa's Routledge Modise
Hogan Lovells will merge with South African firm Routledge Modise, with the combination set to go live on 1 December. Routledge will take on Hogan Lovells' name following the combination, rebranding from early 2014. With no presence on the ground, Hogan Lovells' Africa practice is largely run out of its Paris office. It also works with local law firms in the region. The firm has about 40 lawyers around the world focusing on Africa; however, management believes a presence on the continent has now become necessary given that the majority of the firm's top 200 clients have African operations.
