US: Hogan Lovells adds antitrust partner

 |  February 12, 2017

Hogan Lovells announced that Andrew Lee will join the firm’s Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation practice as a partner in its Washington, DC office.

He joins the firm from Steptoe & Johnson where he was a partner in the Antitrust & Competition Practice in Washington, DC. Prior to that, he practiced law at White & Case LLP for about a decade, where he began to focus his time on representing clients based in Asia. He started his career at the US Federal Trade Commission. Lee’s arrival follows the firm’s December hire of Christopher H. Casey, former Deputy Associate Attorney General at the United States Department of Justice, and the January promotion of Justin Bernick and Meghan Rissmiller to partnership.

Lee concentrates his practice on antitrust/competition law, including cartel defense and merger review proceedings. He has particularly strong experience representing Korean and Japanese clients, and has advised clients on mergers and defended them during investigations by the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice. Fluent in Korean, Lee will be actively involved in the expansion of the firm’s antitrust practice in Korea, Japan, and the rest of Asia.
