Hogan Lovells Announces Changes In Leadership to Two of Government Regulatory Practice Teams

Washington, 24 October 2017 – Today, Hogan Lovells announced new leadership for two of its industry-leading Government Regulatory practices. Effective November 1, former U.S. Senator Norm Coleman will become Practice Area Leader for the Government Relations and Policy Advocacy practice with Robert Kyle serving as Administrative Partner. Additionally, Eduardo Ustaran will join Marcy Wilder as Co-Practice Area Leader of the Privacy and Cybersecurity practice. Harriet Pearson will continue to lead the firm’s global cross-practice Cybersecurity team.

Prior to joining Hogan Lovells in 2011, Senator Coleman spent over 30 years in public service. He represented Minnesota in the U.S. Senate from 2003-2009, served as mayor of St. Paul from 1994-2002, and worked in the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office serving as both the highest-ranking civil and criminal lawyer in the Office as Solicitor General and Chief Prosecutor, respectively. He currently represents clients on a wide range of regulatory and government affairs issues. Senator Coleman takes over for Mike House who will continue as a partner in the group.

Kyle previously served in the Clinton White House, first as Special Assistant to the President for International Trade and Finance with the National Security Council and the National Economic Council, then as an Associate Director at the Office of Management and Budget. Since joining the firm in 2001, he has advised clients in a variety of areas including U.S. sanctions, CFIUS, export controls, taxes, energy policy, budget issues, trade restrictions, and trade agreements policy.

Ustaran is internationally recognized in privacy and data protection law, and advises some of the world's leading companies on the adoption of global privacy strategies and is closely involved in the development of the new EU data protection framework. Based in the firm’s London office, he is a dually qualified English Solicitor and Spanish Abogado.

The Government Relations and Policy Advocacy practice features a bipartisan roster of lawyers and policy advisors with a wealth of experience at all levels of government, including the White House and Capitol Hill. The Privacy and Cybersecurity practice includes more than 80 lawyers in 16 countries and was selected by Chambers for the second time in three years as “Privacy Practice of the Year.” Recently, the group launched GDPRnow, a free iOS and Android mobile application that provides companies with assistance to identify practical steps to comply with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is the first app ever aimed at generating a GDPR compliance action plan specific to an individual business’s activities.
