Allison McKenna Donovan

Senior Associate

Allison McKenna Donovan

Allison Donovan is a senior associate representing both strategic and fund-based investors in complex mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures. Based in our Denver office, Allison's love of her hometown is just one reason why she's so invested in the success of her clients.

From the start, Allison had a unique insight into business concerns: She began her legal career in the in-house lawyers' offices of two large corporations. Today, she leverages that experience on a daily basis to help her clients achieve business success. Her undergraduate degree in cellular neuroscience provides a framework for creative legal problem solving, as well as a distinctive understanding of the life sciences industry.

Before she returned to Colorado to join Hogan Lovells, Allison worked in the New York office of a leading international law firm.
