Hogan Lovells adds Staff Director for the House Intelligence Committee as partner

Washington, D.C., 12 July 2021 – Global law firm Hogan Lovells announced today that Timothy S. Bergreen, the former staff director for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and Chief of Staff to Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), has joined the firm as a partner in its Government Relations and Public Affairs practice.

Bergreen has more than two decades of experience advising and legislating across a range of policy issues relating to national security, including intelligence, foreign policy, defense, trade, sanctions, cybersecurity, cryptocurrencies, telecoms, satellite communications, and appropriations in the House, Senate, and Department of State. A respected Washington professional, Bergreen established a reputation for working across party lines to navigate the political and policy dynamics needed to achieve success in polarized and complex times.

“An important lesson I learned while serving in Congress is that nothing in government happens in a vacuum. Every decision involves a careful analysis of how it intersects and impacts business, law, policy, and politics -- both here and abroad -- which is something Hogan Lovells has a reputation for doing at an extraordinarily high level,” said Bergreen. “I am excited to join the firm to help our clients maximize and extend the breadth of the firm’s capabilities to achieve their goals.” As Staff Director of the House Intelligence Committee, which oversees U.S. intelligence agencies including components of the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice, State, Treasury and Energy, Bergreen developed excellent working relationships with contacts in Congress and across the intelligence, foreign policy, and defense communities.

“Hogan Lovells has a leading global regulatory practice with more than 650 lawyers, and adding a partner of Tim’s caliber only solidifies that reputation,” said Alice Valder Curran, who leads the firm’s Global Regulatory & IPMT practice. “I’m excited to bring Tim onto our team. He deepens our bench of professionals who know the players as well as the rules and will be a key asset to help our clients in the U.S. and around the world, helping them approach the evolving and complex global regulatory landscape not as an obstacle, but as a source of opportunity.”

“As a global firm with roots firmly planted in Washington, D.C., I am thrilled that Tim is joining us,” said Michele Farquhar, D.C. Office Managing Partner. “Hogan Lovells operates at the intersection of business and government, and Tim’s experience at the highest levels of government will give our clients a competitive advantage when it comes to thinking ahead and looking around corners for what’s next.”

Bergreen represents the latest in a series of significant hires further bolstering the firm’s Government Relations and Public Affairs practice. They include an impressive group that spans industry sectors including Anna Weinstein and Cybil Roehrenbeck in the life sciences and health care sector, former Comcast Senior Deputy General Counsel Shelita Stewart, former FAA Chief Counsel Arjun Garg, and former Deputy Assistant to the President for International Economic Affairs and Deputy Director of the National Economic Council Kelly Ann Shaw.
