ashington DC firm Hogan & Hartson has taken two finance partners from the London office of Dorsey & Whitney as it continues its determined push into the City.
Former Dorsey London head Peter Kohl and partner Jeffrey Hurlburt resigned on Friday (26 September). Their arrival at Hogan & Hartson in two weeks' time will take Hogan's London partner count to 14.
Kohl and Hurlburt have worked on a number of technology and infrastructure financings. Kohl told The Lawyer: "Hogan has invested and built out into a significant pan-European practice - it has eight offices and about 150 lawyers in Europe. Jeff and I found it attractive because we do a variety of finance transactions in different jurisdictions in Europe."
Hogan & Hartson is aiming to double the size of its London office in the next year. A source close to the firm said that recruitment was a priority given London's size relative to its Continental offices.
In the past few months the firm has also taken on tax partner Jonathan Ivinson from McDermott Will & Emery and asset finance partner Austen Hall from Clyde & Co. Dorsey & Whitney did not return calls for comment.
