Hogan Lovells Appoints New Board Members

9 May 2016

LONDON and WASHINGTON, D.C., 9 May 2016 – Hogan Lovells has elected new partners to its Board.

Marie-Aimée de Dampierre and Phoebe Wilkinson have been elected for two of the “At Large” seats and Andrew McGinty has been elected as the representative for the Asia Pacific Middle East area. Miguel Zaldivar has been re-elected as the representative for a second term to the non-DC Area U.S. seat. All begin or continue their roles with immediate effect.

The Hogan Lovells Board comprises 12 members in total and has supervisory responsibility for overseeing the affairs of the firm, but without executive responsibility for strategy, management, and operating decisions. It provides input to the CEO and Hogan Lovells’ International Management Committee.  Members of the Board make up the Compensation Committee and are part of the Advancement Committee which they chair. Membership of the Board is designed to reflect the broad scope of the business, with members representing a combination of geographic and other backgrounds.

Biographical details on the new Board members:

Andrew McGinty is a partner in the firm’s Shanghai office and head of the corporate practice in Asia. He has broad experience advising on PRC-related corporate and commercial matters, private and public mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and other foreign investment projects. His practice is broad-based, but with areas of particular focus in the financial services, competition, real estate, and TMT.

Phoebe Wilkinson is a partner in the firm’s New York office and heads its Litigation, Arbitration and Employment group. Phoebe has more than 20 years of experience appearing in courts throughout the United States and before international arbitration tribunals around the world.
