Boston, 12 February, 2024 – Global law firm Hogan Lovells announced today that Nicola Lemay has joined the firm’s Corporate & Finance practice as a partner in the Boston office. Lemay joins the firm from Foley Hoag where she chaired the Tax practice group.

“We are thrilled to welcome Nicola to our growing Corporate & Finance practice, and particularly our U.S. team, which has seen significant growth over the last year in New York and Boston,” said James Doyle, Global Head of the Corporate & Finance practice group. “Bringing more than two decades of experience, Nicola adds to our sophisticated transactional offering across a number of industries, including the life sciences, technology and renewable energy sectors.” 

In her tax practice, Lemay regularly advises clients on domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, licensing and other intellectual property transactions, capital raising and deployment, project finance, joint ventures and partnerships. She also represents clients before the Internal Revenue Service and state tax authorities on requests for private letter rulings and other official guidance.

“Our leading practice is focused on providing sophisticated, market-leading tax counsel to clients on their toughest transactional matters,” said Karen Hughes and Siobhan Rausch, Practice Area Co-Leads, Tax, Pensions & Benefits. “In addition to providing highly sought after transactional tax expertise in the life sciences sector to our global team, Nicola’s experience will bolster our energy and renewables offering, particularly in the transactional space.”

“Nicola is a pillar of the Boston legal community. She has a history of deep involvement with the Boston Bar Association, and she continues to distinguish herself as a leading tax attorney with experience representing major clients in some of their most challenging matters,” added Greg Noonan, who serves as Office Managing Partner for the firm’s Boston office. “Nicola is the ninth addition to our C&F practice in Boston in the last two years and we look forward to working with her as we continue to expand our presence in the dynamic Boston market.”
