The outflow of skilled staff from the US Department of Justice continues as the Trump transition team shapes the President-elect’s cabinet appointments, lawyers included.

Hogan Lovells has announced that Chris Casey, former deputy associate attorney general at the United States Department of Justice (DoJ), will join the firm’s antitrust, competition and economic regulation practice as a partner in its Washington, DC office.
