Hogan & Hartson’s London office made one of the highest-profile US lateral hires of the year in 2006 when it swooped on Shearman to snare M&A partner Jonathan Coppin.

Coppin now heads Hogan’s developing London M&A and corporate practice, a group that saw some significant successes last year, including advising Norilsk Nickel on its £222m cash acquisition of OM Group’s nickel business and Russian car manufacturer GAZ’s purchase of UK-based LDV Holdings.

Earlier this year the Washington DC-based firm also outlined its plans to import its market-leading US real estate investment trusts practice into London to capitalise on the UK’s introduction of listed property investment companies.
