New board for Hogan & Hartson

To be headed by new chairman Warren Gorrell, the head of the New York office, it will include Jeanne Archibald as managing partner of practice administration, Raymond Batla as managing partner of the international offices and George Mayo as managing partner of operations.

Gorrell replaces longstanding head of the firm managing partner Bob Glen Odle, who is stepping down.

Odle says: “Hogan & Hartson is fortunate indeed to have such a talented and experienced management team take the reins, and Warren Gorrell is the perfect choice to lead the firm.

“Having built a $20m plus [corporate and securities] practice while holding many important management positions in the firm, Warren is widely respected for his leadership abilities, practice development skills and firm-mindedness.
