Hogan Lovells picks up Moscow disputes team
Hogan Lovells has hired a team of four arbitration and litigation lawyers in Moscow from rival firm Linklaters.
The team is led by Alexei Dudko - who leaves behind a role as head of the Linklaters disputes team in Moscow to join Hogan Lovells as a partner - and includes one senior associate and two associates. The move boosts Hogan Lovells’ Moscow practice to seven qualified lawyers.
Patrick Sherrington, co-head of the litigation, arbitration, and employment practice at Hogan Lovells, said: "A vibrant Russian disputes practice is important to our global litigation and arbitration practice, and to Hogan Lovells as a whole. Alexei is a first rate disputes lawyer and he will allow us to continue our expansion into areas such as investigations."
