Legal Week shortlists Hogan Lovells in three categories for the 2013 British Legal Awards
Hogan Lovells has been shortlisted in three categories — Litigation and Regulatory Team of the Year; Restructuring Team of the Year; and Assistant/Associate Solicitor — for the Legal Week 2013 British Legal Awards.
The firm’s nomination in the Litigation and Regulatory Team of the Year category is for the banking litigation team’s work on the Patrick McKillen v Sir David Rowat Barclay and other cases over the control of three of London’s most prestigious hotels. Hogan Lovells acted for National Asset Loan Management (NAMA), which was successful in defending a challenge made by Mr McKillen, the Barclay brothers and others for what Mr McKillen claimed was an invalid debt sale.
The firm has also been shortlisted in the Restructuring Team of the Year category for advising the trustees of the Kodak Pension Plan (KPP) on a pensions restructuring, saving the 15,000 members from the Pension Protection Fund (PPF).
Meanwhile, finance senior associate Camille Astier has been shortlisted for her work helping to establish Hogan Lovells’ Africa practice.
The awards dinner will be held on 28 November 2013 in London.
