Hogan Lovells strengthens Australia corporate team with addition of two high-profile Sydney partners

Hogan Lovells announced today that David Holland and Charles Bogle will be joining the firm as partners in the Corporate practice, based in the Sydney office.

The addition of David and Charles marks the next phase of the firm's investment and growth in Australia. In 2015, Hogan Lovells opened offices in Sydney and Perth to capture high-end, complex transactions and disputes, and to support the firm's key global clients in pursuing their business interests in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. Hogan Lovells has acted on a number of leading transactions in the Australian market since opening, and the addition of Holland and Bogle is the next step to continued growth and success in Australia.

David is an experienced M&A lawyer with a strong background in securities law. He leads and will bring a team of lawyers who have advised on some of the largest public M&A transactions in Australia. Beyond M&A deals, he advises both issuers and underwriters on IPOs and publicly-listed companies on corporate governance matters.

Charles has deep experience advising on complex and innovative M&A transactions, with a strong focus on working with financial investors, including private equity, infrastructure investors and direct investments for super funds.

Commenting on the new arrivals, Global Head of the Hogan Lovells Corporate practice David Gibbons, said: "Charles and David are an experienced and formidable pair to lead and further develop our Corporate practice in Sydney. The combination of David’s M&A and ECM capabilities and Charles’ private equity experience positions us for further growth in Australia and aligns with our continuing efforts to build out our capabilities in key markets to support our clients' needs across the Asia-Pacific region."

David Holland said: "My team and I are thrilled to be joining a high quality practice—domestically and globally. Hogan Lovells has an excellent reputation and strong network and I am excited to help the firm expand its presence in Australia."

Charles Bogle added: "Hogan Lovells has an incredible culture and client service focus. The great team in Australia together with the formidable global private equity practice offers an unparalleled opportunity to help serve my clients wherever the deal takes them."
