  • And a cynic might say that Hogan Lovells didn't really want to be on the wrong end of a long court and nasty battle with the FBI - especially as Hogans is a big Washington DC player. But, of course, that would be thoughts of a total cynic and it would be totally wrong to think that.......

  • I doubt very much that Hogan Lovells' concerns was being up against the FBI or about the chances of winning - this case will be a billing machine for a client who has deep pockets. The real culprit is more likely their media and entertainment clients, who did not want the firm representing Megaupload. If you look at their Chambers rankings, you'll see they do work for such media companies as NBC Universal and Fox.
