New York, 28 June 2022 –  Global law firm Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce that New York partner Phoebe A. Wilkinson has been appointed to the newly created role of Global Managing Partner for Growth, which will focus on growing the firm's strategic client relationships and leveraging our strengths in key industry sectors.
