Commenting on the recent appointment, David Gibbons, global head of the Corporate & Finance practice at Hogan Lovells, said: "The addition of Nikolai is yet another step in our focused effort to enhance our private equity practice in key markets. Following the recent additions of London corporate partners Ed Harris and Leanne Moezi, and hires in the US and Shanghai, Nikolai's' appointment demonstrates our ongoing commitment and desire to continue to grow the practice in Europe and beyond. We already have an existing group of energetic and ambitious partners who are executing a broad range of transactions for private equity and private capital clients, and Nikolai's appointment further enhances that capacity."
