Hogan Lovells Grows London Team

 |  September 14, 2022

Hogan Lovells on Wednesday said it has hired a fintech specialist from DLA Piper and a private equity lawyer from Linklaters as partners in its London office.

Banking and capital markets lawyer Bryony Widdup will join the firm’s corporate and finance group this fall after more than four years as a DLA Piper partner. Widdup has also worked at Deutsche Bank, according to her LinkedIn profile.

She focuses on blockchain-based lending platforms and other digital assets and advises clients on reaching net-zero carbon emissions, Hogan Lovells said.

Six months ago, the global firm hired technology lawyer Luke Grubb as a consultant for its London blockchain practice. Grubb is a former partner at Clifford Chance and Latham & Watkins and was working at his own consulting firm before joining Hogan Lovells, his LinkedIn profile said.

David Trott, DLA Piper’s global head of finance, projects and restructuring, said in a statement that the firm wishes Widdup well.
