Hogan Lovells US LLP has a broad private equity practice, with core centres of expertise in Northern Virginia, Denver, Houston and California. Despite the departure of Alexander Johnson in New York to Latham & Watkins LLP in early 2019, the firm has built on its fine record in certain sectors such as life sciences, healthcare and financial services. Having expanded its team in northern California in recent years, it has seen further growth in technology deals; notably it advised Silver Lake Partners on the sale of Quorum Business Solutions to Thoma Bravo in 2018. Key clients include Acon Investments, Excellere Capital Management and The Anschutz Corporation. Northern Virginia partner Robert Welp and Denver's George Hagerty are the most senior members of the private equity team, while Denver partner Mark Kurtenbach and Houston's Gregory Hill are also key figures.
