Hogan Lovells Appoints New Graduate Recruitment Partners
03 September 2014
LONDON, 3 September 2014 - Hogan Lovells has named litigation and finance partners Louise Lamb and Tom Astle as its new Graduate Recruitment Partners.
The pair have taken over from finance partner James Doyle and corporate partner Ben Higson, who have come to the end of their successful three-year term as the firm's Graduate Recruitment Partners.
In their new roles, Louise and Tom will continue to develop Hogan Lovells graduate recruitment strategy and participate in the various campus-based activities the firm undertakes across the country. Both lawyers will continue to demonstrate the firm's commitment to balance and diversity through our graduate recruitment profile. They will work closely with litigation partner Elaine Penrose, who will continue in her current role leading our vacation scheme programmes.
In addition, David Moss, who is a partner in the Energy, Natural Resources and Infrastructure team, will remain as Training Principal for a further three years having already served a year in the role. One of David's key responsibilities will be to continue to assess any changes brought in by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) to the way the training contract is delivered.
Susan Bright, who is Hogan Lovells' Regional Managing Partner for the UK and Africa and a partner in the firm's Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation practice, said:
"I am grateful to both Louise and Tom for agreeing to take on this important responsibility. They will play a vital role in attracting the next generation of future talent to our firm. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank James and Ben for their enormous contribution to the graduate recruitment effort in recent years.”
Louise, a partner in Hogan Lovells' Financial Services Litigation team in London, commented:
"It's a real privilege to be ambassadors for our excellent graduate recruitment programme which recruits, develops and retains some of the most talented and diverse lawyers in the City."
