04 May 2015
WASHINGTON, D.C., 4 May 2015 – Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce that Alice Valder Curran has been named the new regional managing partner for its Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Northern Virginia, Philadelphia, and Minneapolis offices.
Curran joined Hogan Lovells in 1998, and is a Health partner in the firm’s Government Regulatory practice. She is a nationally recognized expert on the Medicare and Medicaid price reporting programs that are a key compliance obligation for pharmaceutical manufacturers in the United States.
Curran succeeds Emily Yinger, who has been in the role since 2010. Yinger has been integral in improving professional development programs for associates, counsel, and partners. Yinger also has been instrumental in the ReVision project, which is a major undertaking to improve and update the work environment in the Washington office.
“Emily’s leadership has been central to our growth in the region during her five years at the helm,” said Hogan Lovells CEO Stephen J. Immelt. “We are excited to have Alice continue in this pivotal role, ensuring the continued success of the firm.”
Hogan Lovells’ Washington, D.C. office is one of the city’s largest and most established law practices, leveraging impressive regulatory capabilities to serve clients at the intersection of business and government. While Washington is one of Hogan Lovells’ two international “hubs,” all of the offices Curran will oversee bring unique strengths to the firm, including: M&A and intellectual property capabilities in Northern Virginia, life sciences industry expertise in Baltimore, deep FDA regulatory experience in Philadelphia, and outstanding litigation capabilities in Minneapolis.
“I have been with the firm for more than 17 years and have worked with each of these offices to leverage all these areas of expertise. I personally understand the region’s considerable impact on the overall success of our firm,” said Curran. “We see a number of opportunities for growth in several key practice and industry areas where the firm already has a strong national and international presence.”
