Carine S. Stoick
French, Arabic
Practice Group

In today's increasingly interconnected world, global businesses require effective legal solutions that reach across borders and between continents. Carine Stoick, an M&A partner in the firm's Corporate Practice Group and the Office Administrative Partner of the Northern Virginia Office, understands how to find and execute these solutions.

She counsels companies and private equity investors on both domestic and cross-border corporate matters, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, spin-offs, management and leveraged buy-outs, and corporate governance. From her experience advising clients both in the U.S. and abroad, Carine believes the best legal advice helps corporations and investors execute their business strategies no matter where their operations are located.

Based in Northern Virginia, Carine represents clients in regulated industries including aerospace, defense and government services, healthcare, automotive, life sciences, and transportation. Having grown up speaking both French and Arabic at home, Carine leverages her international perspective and cross-border experience to advise clients on high-profile corporate transactions throughout the EU.

A graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law, Carine believes in sharing the lessons of her work and experience. She has co-taught a course at her alma mater entitled "The Role of Counsel in Business Transactions," and has spoken on corporate law as part of a program sponsored by Virginia Law Women. Passionate about giving back, Carine has also worked extensively with the Hogan Lovells Women's Initiative Network (WIN) as a member of its professional development subcommittee.
