Hogan Lovells prepares new Dublin base
Global law firm Hogan Lovells is getting ready to recruit up to 30 people in Ireland.
The firm, which is in the process of selecting a Dublin office, hired Eoin O Connor in October to lead a regulatory practice in Dublin.
Mr O Connor, a financial regulatory planner, was formerly at Walkers.
Hogan Lovells employs 2,400 lawyers internationally and is not looking to open a full service firm in Ireland but rather will focus on regulatory advisory work and will advise on areas such as asset disposal, data privacy and consumer protection compliance.
Mr O Connor said the firm is looking for experienced staff and has in mind a graduate programme and other departments in the future.
