Hot Property: Hogan Lovells Partners Featured in The Lawyer's Hot 100 2017

Hogan Lovells partners Suyong Kim and Rebecca Wales have been included in The Lawyer's Hot 100 list, published today.

The prestigious list from leading UK legal magazine The Lawyer celebrates the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers in the UK from private practice, in-house and the Bar.

Suyong Kim is global co-head of Hogan Lovell's Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation practice, and was recognized by The Lawyer for leading the competition teams that got AB InBev's acquisition of SABMiller over the line, and brought Air Canada to victory in a landmark ruling before the EU General Court. 

The Lawyer commented: "As head of the team, she handled substantial requests as regulators scrutinised all aspects of the £78bn [AB InBev  SABMiller] megamerger…The deal dominated Kim's 2016, but she still found time to lead Air Canada to victory…the decision was monumental, successfully overturning the European Commission's 2010 decision on fines for alleged price-fixing."

Suyong said: "It is a great honour to be included in the Hot 100 and recognized among the best lawyers in the UK."

Commercial litigation partner Rebecca Wales was recognized for her work on the complex multibillion-dollar fraud case against Russian businessman Sergei Pugachev, dubbed 'Putin's Banker', with The Lawyer commenting: "The case involved Wales co-leading a team investigating and drawing together evidence, deploying a series of freezing injunctions and search orders on global assets… One move even saw Wales hand-deliver a court order on Pugachev at his Chelsea home with a tipstaff escort."

Rebecca commented: "I am delighted to have been included in the list alongside so many other high-calibre lawyers."
