Hogan Lovells litigation partner, Richard Lewis, and Head of Financial Services, Emily Reid, are featured in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 list, published today.
The prestigious list from leading UK legal magazine The Lawyer celebrates the most innovative and creative lawyers in the UK from private practice, in-house and the Bar.
Richard Lewis was recognised by The Lawyer for his work on complex CIS-related matters such as his ongoing work on the PrivatBank case against its former owners Kolomoisky and Bogolyubov. He has also recently picked up a major new mandate in the Kazakhstan Kagazy litigation.
The Lawyer commented: “In the UK legal market, Hogan Lovells litigation partner Richard Lewis is the go-to guy for complex CIS-related matters.”
Emily Reid heads the Hogan Lovells Financial Services practice and leads the Banking, Lending and Payments practice. Innovation has always been a significant part of Emily’s practice from her ground-breaking work on the UK’s first ever debit card to advising Zopa, the world’s first peer-to peer lender and challengers, such as Curve, on bringing their ground breaking products to market.
The Lawyer commented: “In the tech community, Reid is a fairy godmother for early-stage companies, leading a mentoring programme that each year provides 10 fintech-focused start-ups with £25,000 worth of free legal advice. In 2020, she will capitalise on that knowledge by encapsulating it into chatbots that will answer client queries automatically 24/7.”
Richard and Emily commented: “It is a privilege to be considered among the best lawyers in the UK. We are both delighted with today’s recognition.”
