Hogan Lovells can have a real discussion with you and the more junior members have real energy and ideas to contribute.

Chambers 2020, Administrative and Public Law (Band 1)

Fraser assists clients in the public and private sectors on both contentious and advisory matters, including UK constitutional and administrative law, commercial judicial review, commercial human rights, public international law, political law compliance and freedom of information.  He assists private sector clients to capitalise on opportunities and mitigate risks through their engagement with government decision-makers, and helps public sector clients to make more robust policy decisions. When necessary to achieve his clients' objectives, Fraser acts for claimants, defendants and interested parties in high-profile and complex judicial review and other statutory appeal proceedings.

Fraser is fascinated by the state, how it functions, and the drivers of policy and regulatory change. He began his career as a policy advisor at HM Treasury, advising on matters relating to tax policy, trade, and the UK’s exit from the European Union. Prior to joining Hogan Lovells he worked as a tax lawyer, with a practice which focused upon investment fund structuring and fundraises, executive incentive arrangements, leveraged finance and private equity transactions.
