The Paris office of Washington's largest law firm Hogan & Hartson has poached a top communications partner from rival Hughes Hubbard & Reed.
Winston Maxwell, who is highly regarded within his sector, represents clients in telecommunications, internet and new media law. He is admitted to practice in New York and is an Avocat à la Cour in Paris.
Managing partner of the firm's Paris office Alan Cariddi says: "Maxwell has a strong telecommunications and technology background in France, at the EU level and in the US, and he is well positioned to advise our international clients as they capitalise on the convergence of these two sectors."
Hogan & Hartson is a fullservice firm, but the move follows a decision to set up an office in Berlin, the German media centre, at the end of last year.
The Berlin office is headed by media and telecoms guru Christoph Wagner, who left Oppenhoff & Rädler following its merger with Linklaters & Alliance.
