Practice groupLitigation, Arbitration, and Employment

As part of our Litigation, Arbitration, and Employment practice, Antonia Croke focuses on complex, cross-border litigation for multinational companies and financial institutions.

Antonia has particular experience of corporate and shareholder disputes, fraud, employment, insolvency, and financial services litigation.

She has recently relocated to our Hong Kong office, where she will practice as a foreign legal consultant.

Antonia has spent the last ten years in London assisting multinational companies and financial institutions involved in cross-jurisdictional disputes, investigations, and injunctions. Her calm, commercial, and pragmatic approach means that she is adept at managing global teams on high profile cases across Europe, the UK, US, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia. She also has experience in conducting internal and regulatory investigations.

Before joining Hogan Lovells, Antonia worked in the London office of an international law firm and as an associate in two leading Australian law firms in Sydney from 2004 to 2010. Antonia also spent time on secondment in the Litigation team at a major UK bank. In 2015 Antonia was featured in the Cambridge Judge Business School magazine, Flux as a “Leading Light” in the legal industry.

Antonia continues to work with global clients to help them understand their shifting risk landscape, as technology disrupts their industries, and helps them to ensure they're maximising the use of technology to mitigate those risks, whether in compliance programmes or through the use of AI in litigation.
