Hogan takes on two partners in London with CMS and Landwell captures

Washington DC-based law firm Hogan & Hartson has bagged two new partners for its London office with the addition of CMS Cameron McKenna’s water practice head Richard Temple and Landwell’s head of insurance Jennifer Donohue.

Donohue and Temple are the first recruits of 2005 for Hogan, which has stated its ambition to be a full-service law firm in London.
The firm grew rapidly in 2004 with the addition of six new partners and 12 associates in the asset finance, tax, property and corporate finance practice areas.

Donohue was head of insurance and reinsurance at Landwell and one of only three equity partners in the London office of the PricewaterhouseCoopers-tied firm. Donohue joined Landwell from Theodore Goddard (now Addleshaw Goddard) in 2002.

Insurance is a new market for Hogan in London, but the firm has an established energy and projects practice.

Temple was head of water projects at Camerons. His recent projects have included a public-private partnership project for the provision of water and sewage services to the Ministry of Defence and advising the World Bank on a toolkit to help implement water and sewerage projects worldwide.

Camerons did not return calls for comment. Landwell declined to comment.
