Lovells and Hogan in talks to create new global giant

October 9, 2009 Lovells, the City’s sixth-biggest law firm, is in merger talks with leading US firm Hogan & Hartson in what would be the biggest tie-up in the legal sector in nearly five years.

A deal would create a firm with $1.8 billion in revenue and 2,500 lawyers, vaulting Lovells and Hogan & Hartson from the second tier in their respective markets to become the world’s ninth-largest law firm, just behind Allen & Overy.
