Washington, D.C., Silicon Valley, 26 January 2023 — Global law firm Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce three partners at the firm – Richard (Rick) Climan (Silicon Valley), Neal Katyal, and Cate Stetson (both Washington, D.C.) - have been included in Lawdragon’s 2023 American lawyer rankings.

Climan, the Global Head of the firm’s Technology M&A practice and one of Silicon Valley’s most prominent dealmakers, was included in Lawdragon’s 2023 Hall of Fame class, supplementing his recognition as one of the inaugural “Legends of the 500” in 2015. In a career spanning over 40 years, Climan has guided many of the world’s most recognizable technology companies through mergers & acquisitions, along the way setting incomparable standards for thought leadership and mentoring young lawyers. Climan has been described by Lawdragon as “one of the nation's best legal minds in M&A;" "synonymous with big-ticket M&A deals in the tech sector;" and an "M&A superstar [whose] stellar reputation extends far beyond Silicon Valley to the global stage."  His full public profile can be found here.
