Hogan Lovells US appoints white-collar and antitrust lawyer Kathryn Hellings as partner

Kathryn Hellings will join Hogan Lovells US as a partner in its antitrust, competition and economic regulation (ACER) and investigations, white-collar and fraud groups on 3 June 2014.

Hellings’ arrival follows the February hire of fellow Department of Justice Antitrust Division alumna Rachel Brandenburger and will coincide with the secondment of cartel lawyer Megan Dixon to Europe this summer.

Hellings, a white-collar and antitrust lawyer specialising in cartels, will join Hogan Lovells after serving nearly 11 years with the Department of Justice’s National Criminal Enforcement Section, Antitrust Division. Most recently, she served as the assistant chief of the National Criminal Enforcement Section for three years and was one of only nine section managers nationwide. Prior to her role as assistant chief, she served as a trial attorney for eight years.

Hellings was honoured with multiple awards during her government service, including twice-receiving the Assistant Attorney General’s Award of Distinction as well as receiving the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service.

Hellings received her JD from George Washington University and her BA from Le Moyne College.
