Hogan Lovells confirms CEO Miguel Zaldivar will be re-appointed for second term
5 September 2023 – Partners at Hogan Lovells have voted to confirm that CEO Miguel Zaldivar should be re-appointed to a second four-year term, ending 30 June 2028.
Zaldivar began his first term as Hogan Lovells CEO on 1 July 2020, and he and his management team have achieved record financial results across a wide range of metrics including revenue, PPEP, RPL and PPL. Despite challenges including the war in Ukraine, the pandemic, unprecedented inflation levels, and a drop in legal services globally, Zaldivar and the management team have continued to elevate the firm’s position as a leading global firm.
Marie-Aimée de Dampierre, Chair of the Hogan Lovells Board, said: “Miguel and his management team have delivered outstanding results over the past three years, steering our firm through turbulent and unprecedented times to achieve our highest ever financial performance. He has a clear vison and strategy, which we believe will lead us to even greater success, while continuing to foster our ambitious and supportive culture. We are thankful to Miguel for his leadership and commitment to our firm.”
Zaldivar and his team have had a strong focus on quality, and also driven efforts to build on the firm’s recognized strengths in highly-regulated sectors – energy, financial institutions, life sciences, media and telecoms, mobility, and technology. The firm has also prioritized deepening and strengthening its relationships with many of its global clients, and restructuring its business operations (including a comprehensive review of all of its real estate holdings). In addition Zaldivar has developed robust business plans for the firm’s four economic engines: Washington, D.C., London, Germany, and Paris, and focused on significant growth in the strategic markets of New York, Texas, California, and Asia.
Zaldivar said: “I am deeply honored to serve another term as CEO of Hogan Lovells, a firm where I have spent the majority of my career. As one of a few truly integrated global law firms, Hogan Lovells is fortunate to represent many of the world’s leading companies and top brands in their most complex matters across jurisdictions. We know that to earn this trust we need to deliver value and a consistently high quality service.
“We have accomplished so much over the past three years, despite the many global market challenges. This is a high-performing, culturally-distinct organization that is unique in our industry. It is why we are known as a great place to work and to thrive. I am looking forward to the opportunity to continue to grow and evolve our firm.”
