Practice groupLitigation, Arbitration, and Employment

Alan is dedicated to helping his clients through their toughest commercial litigation cases, arbitrations, and internal investigations.

He has substantial experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in connection with breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, misappropriation of trade secrets, and Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) claims. Alan understands how valuable an effective discovery strategy can be in driving favorable settlements for our clients and otherwise preparing cases for trial. Working with our Investigations, White Collar, and Fraud team, Alan has assisted clients with complex federal investigations, including in response to whistleblower claims. He also advises clients involved in mergers and acquisitions with the drafting of purchase agreements and indemnification claims.

Alan also maintains an active pro bono practice. He won a grant of asylum for an El Salvadoran client who had been targeted and severely beaten by MS-13 after conducting direct examinations in immigration court. He has also represented incarcerated clients in civil rights cases and has drafted multiple appellate briefs and argued one such appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Alan currently represents a transgender woman from Brazil who is seeking asylum in the United States.

Having first joined Hogan Lovells as a summer associate in 2014 and then as an associate in 2015, Alan has taken on multiple leadership positions within the firm. He is an elected co-chair of the New York Associates Committee and was selected by the Americas Diversity Committee as a senior associate sponsor in the New York office's Litigation, Arbitration, and Employment group. Alan understands the significant impact of mentorship and training and was nominated for a Highlight Award by his peers in recognition of his contributions in these areas.
