11 April 2011
BALTIMORE, 11 April 2011 – Hogan Lovells US LLP announced today that Jeffrey E. Gordon has joined the Baltimore office as a partner in the Litigation, Arbitration, and Employment practice. Gordon was previously a partner at Jones Day in the White Collar and Healthcare practices in the Washington, D.C. office.
Gordon focuses his practice on business litigation, including class actions; internal investigations and compliance advice for corporate clients; and white collar defense. He has handled disputes concerning a wide range of issues, including accounting fraud, healthcare fraud, shareholder derivative suits, board of director liability litigation, False Claims Act (including qui tam lawsuits), litigation, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigations, and patent and trademark infringement.
Gordon’s litigation, investigations, and white collar practices include the representation of corporations and individuals in all stages of federal and state civil and criminal proceedings. He has tried cases in federal and state courts in a number of jurisdictions and has experience resolving matters through mediation and arbitration. He has extensive experience defending healthcare companies and served as lead counsel for an international medical device manufacturer in a number of internal investigations.
Besides his defense of healthcare companies and others in white collar criminal investigations and prosecutions, Gordon’s litigation practice has encompassed a broad range of disputes, including telecommunications, insurance coverage, patents, trademarks, and contracts.
"We are delighted to welcome Jeff to our litigation practice,” said Stephen Immelt, Co-Chair of the Litigation, Arbitration, and Employment practice. “Jeff’s deep experience handling healthcare related investigations and fraud issues will be instrumental to current and prospective clients that increasingly demand the kind of focused experience and talent that he can provide.”
Glenn Campbell, Managing Partner of Hogan Lovells' Baltimore office, added: "As clients increasingly turn to us for expanded litigation services in the Baltimore market and in the industries we serve, we continue to add high-caliber lawyers to our practice. Jeff is a terrific trial lawyer with a strong track record handling complex matters, which is critical to our clients in Baltimore and throughout the world.”
Hogan Lovells' Litigation, Arbitration, and Employment practice has a long history of achievement in complex, high-stakes, international disputes fueled by the team’s in-depth knowledge of the distinct customs, rules, and procedures of tribunals such as the International Chamber of Commerce, the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes, the United Nations Compensation Commission, and the World Trade Organization. The Litigation, Arbitration, and Employment group regularly functions at the intersection of business and regulation, combining industry knowledge and a proven ability to litigate and win commercial disputes across all industries and geographies.
