Hogan Lovells appoints new office managing partner in Philadelphia

Hogan Lovells has appointed John Duke as Office Managing Partner for the firm’s Philadelphia office, effective 1 January.

Duke is a Corporate Transactional partner whose diverse corporate practice encompasses mergers and acquisitions, public equity offerings, joint ventures, corporate governance and public company compliance matters. He has advised on dozens of public offerings, including initial public offerings and other capital markets transactions, and has represented public and private companies in connection with mergers, acquisition and carve-out transactions.
In his new role, Duke succeeds Ginny Gibson, a former federal prosecutor and the first Assistant US Attorney and Civil Chief in two federal districts. Gibson will continue with the firm defending clients under federal and state scrutiny against accusations of fraud and regulatory violations.
Hogan Lovells’ Philadelphia office is known for its strength in the life sciences sector, particularly as it relates to corporate, regulatory, civil litigation and white collar investigation issues. Last year, the firm won a high-profile victory on behalf of the City of Philadelphia against the Justice Department for attempting to block federal funding under the Byrne JAG program on account of its policies to protect immigrants.
