Hogan Lovells boosts London infra practice

International law firm Hogan Lovells has bolstered its infrastructure and project finance practice in London with the appointment of two new energy partners.

Matthew Williams and John Deacon have joined Hogan Lovells’ infrastructure and project finance practice in London. 

Both moved from rival international law firm Hunton & Williams, where they focused on projects and finance within the energy sector, also gaining experience in regulation, trading and M&A.

Williams also becomes co-head of Hogan Lovells’ cross-practice energy industry team, which covers all aspects of work for energy clients.

The firm’s infrastructure and project finance practice represents financial institutions, project sponsors, investors, contractors, private equity funds, governments and parastatal bodies on projects in Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and the US.

Three months ago, Hogan Lovells recruited energy partners David Locascio and José Luis Vittor to its infrastructure and project finance practice in Houston.
