“I am honored to join Hogan Lovells. The firm’s breadth of practice and global platform offer true advantages to my clients,” Taylor said. “So much of what I do involves building trust, helping clients tell their stories, and minimizing negative impact on business and reputation,” she added. “I am excited to be part of a litigation powerhouse that can tackle any business challenge, no matter how large or complex.”
