Hogan Lovells US LLP's full-service, interdisciplinary practice stands out for its expertise in new technologies, particularly unmanned aircraft systems, Internet of Things, and healthtech. Washington DC-based communications practice head Michele Farquhar serves as lead counsel for the PTC-220 stakeholder coalition, a rail industry group implementing positive train control systems, which recently sought to purchase additional spectrum for its operations. DC-based Steven Kaufman and Northern Virginia-based Randy Segal lead the firm's space and satellite team, acting for clients including Planet Labs, which retains the firm in several transactional matters including launch service agreements and contracts. The team is also involved in big-ticket deals such as 21st Century Fox's merger with Disney, where it is one of Fox's regulatory counsels, and Sinclair Broadcasting's terminated deal with Tribune Media Group, where it operated as Fox's lead transactional counsel in the purchase of divested stations. New York-based M&A specialist Alexander Johnson is another key contact in the cross-practice team; he advised Anschutz Corporation on its sale of the majority shareholding of Regal Entertainment Group to Cineworld Group as part of a $5.9bn deal. Senior associates Sean Spivey and Arpan Sura are up-and-coming names within the firm.
