Infra specialists among partners promoted at Hogan Lovells

North Africa, the US and Latin America likely to be in the spotlight as the law firm boosts its senior contingent.

Hogan Lovells, an international law firm headquartered in London and Washington DC, has bolstered its senior infrastructure team by naming new partners across three of its 50 offices.

London-based Tarek Eltumi, Washington DC-based Wylie Levone and Miguel Ángel Mateo Simón of the firm’s Mexico City outpost were among the 29 staff promoted to partners last week.

Among other endeavours, Eltumi has focused on the Libyan market and previously served as a government advisor following the country’s 2011 revolution. Levone, who helped open Hogan Lovells’ offices in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, has advised companies doing business in Brazil as well as Brazilian companies working in the US. Simón has worked primarily in the energy and infrastructure sectors, serving clients in Mexico and Latin America.

The firm also announced the appointments of 37 new counsels, including three – Darcy Bisset of the firm’s Baltimore office, Dubai-based Craig Brook and Frankfurt-based Alexander Stefan Rieger – focused on the infrastructure sector.

Hogan Lovells, which employs approximately 2,500 lawyers globally across six continents, was formed in 2010 through the merger of Washington-based Hogan & Hartson and London-based Lovells. The firm’s global infrastructure and transportation division is co-headed by Andrew Briggs in London and Jorge Diaz-Silveira in Miami.
