5 July 2016
LOS ANGELES, 5 July 2016 – Hogan Lovells announced today that Michael Turrill has joined the firm’s Los Angeles office as a partner in the Litigation, Arbitration and Employment (LAE) Practice Group.
Turrill focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, including the defense of consumer-related class actions under federal and state consumer protection laws, business torts and unfair competition litigation, intellectual property matters, employment litigation and contractual and partnership disputes. He represents clients in multiple industries including real estate, consumer goods, food and beverage, financial services, energy, and entertainment and media sectors.
“Mike’s extensive commercial litigation expertise complements our capabilities to address a number of rising issues across a variety of industries,” said Dennis Tracey, Head of Litigation in the Americas at Hogan Lovells. “His diverse background in the litigation space and team-focused qualities exemplify the firm’s approach to collaboration across several practices to better serve our clients.”
Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Turrill was a partner in the L.A. office of an AmLaw 200 law firm. Turrill’s experiences include litigating in both state and federal courts as well as before arbitration panels around the country and internationally.
“Mike’s work in the real estate, consumer class action and media and entertainment space, including digital media, fit squarely within the core practice areas of the Los Angeles office and the firm,” said Barry Dastin, Office Managing Partner of Hogan Lovells’ Los Angeles office. “He is a well-known and widely respected lawyer in the community, and his arrival builds upon significant recent additions to our office, including Stephanie Yonekura, former Acting U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California, and Paul Salvaty, both of whom have strengthened our litigation team led by Michael Maddigan.”
Turrill earned his J.D. from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law, and his B.A. in History from Brown University. He was previously named Pro Bono Attorney of the Year by the University of Southern California’s Public Interest Law Foundation. Mike served for three years as adjunct professor at the USC Gould School of Law.
