Jurisdiction - Vietnam
Hogan Lovells Expands In SE Asia With Managing Partner Hire In Vietnam.

16 January, 2015


Hogan Lovells has announced that partner Samantha Campbell will join its Southeast Asia practice as head of the firm’s Vietnam offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in March. Samantha joins from Gide Loyrette Nouel, where she was heading the Vietnam practice.  Her practice covers a broad spectrum of corporate transactional, projects and finance work, as well as real estate and dispute resolution, with a focus on the infrastructure and energy sectors and financial institutions. 


Patrick Sherrington, Hogan Lovells Regional Managing Partner for Asia and the Middle East, said:


Vietnam is a very significant and growing market for our international clients and is a gateway to ASEAN international trade.  As one of the first international law firms in Vietnam, with a historical presence spanning 20 years, we view this jurisdiction as a key component of our regional strategy and are strongly committed to responding to our clients’ requirements for consistent high quality international legal services and local law advice across the zone. Samantha’s presence on the ground in Vietnam, and experience both in Vietnam and more widely, will greatly enhance our offering and complement our wider South East Asia practice.


Samantha added:


Hogan Lovells investment in and commitment to South East Asia, as well as the depth of its practice areas across Asia, provides the ideal platform for me to work on the significant opportunities offered by the Vietnam market and to increase the firm’s presence in the Mekong region. In combination with the recent recruitment of corporate partner Jeff Olson in Vietnam, I am looking forward to working with the other Hogan Lovells partners across Asia, focussing on the infrastructure, energy and financial institutions sectors, as well as on corporate transactional work.
