Hogan Lovells

Hogan Lovells’ three-partner practice, which is led by Matthew Johnson, displays ‘good depth of industry expertise’; the comparatively small practice ‘appeals because of its global reach’. Recent cross-border work included the team’s advice to Oracle on its $1.2bn acquisition of Aconex, a matter spanning four jurisdictions and the largest takeover achieved by a listed Australian technology company to date. The practice has strong life-sciences sector expertise; notable work included Johnson’s advice to Elastagen on its $260m sale to pharmaceutical company Allergan. In another highlight, finance partner Ros O’Mally assisted Mantra Group with aspects of its $890m sale to Accor, creating the largest hotel group in Australia.
