Hogan Lovells Law Firm Announces Changes to Industry Leadership

In macroeconomics, an industry is a branch of an economy that produces a closely-related set of raw materials, goods, or services. For example, one might refer to the wood industry or to the insurance industry.

Hogan Lovells announces today it has made a series of planned changes to some of its industry sector leadership positions.

Hogan Lovells became a top 10 global legal services provider on 1 May 2010 through an unprecedented combination of two law firms with international credentials, United States-based firm Hogan & Hartson and European-based law firm Lovells.

Modern-day Hogan Lovells carries on the tradition of excellence established by our founders and further builds on their legacy.

Managing Partner for Clients and Industries, Ina Brock, commented: “It speaks to the quality and depth of our industry sector teams that we are able to make regular changes to the distribution of our leadership roles, and recognise our talented people.

I’d like to express my sincere thanks for all of the hard work and significant contribution of those stepping down, and wish those newly appointed every success.

I have no doubt we will continue to excel under their leadership and remain at the forefront of those industries.”

Ina advises clients on how to stay in control of the most complex cross border litigation and crisis communication matters. She has successfully defended her clients in more than 500 German court cases on all levels. She has won cases in the German Supreme Court and the European Court of Justice.

Additionally, Ina has navigated clients through the coordination of more than 60000 claims in class actions and group litigation cases in more than 30 countries worldwide.
