Hogan Lovells reappoints chair
Hogan Lovells reappointed Nicholas Cheffings as chair of the firm for a second term lasting three years. Cheffings' current term ends on 1 April 2015. It is possible that Cheffings was the sole candidate in consideration for the post, after he confirmed he would stand for election again at the end of last year.
Cheffings was first elected in May 2012. Prior to his election, he was head of the real estates disputes team in the London office for Hogan Lovells. Before his term, the firm had co-chairs, Claudette Christian and John Young.
