See yourself
in a place of excellence.

“I came to then Hogan & Hartson as a summer clerk in 1973. I selected the firm because of its excellent practice and reputation, and because it was a great place to work.”

- Janet McDavid, Partner, Washington, D.C.

Focus

My practice focuses on antitrust, competition, and trade regulation, with a particular emphasis on government investigations, litigation, and antitrust policy issues.

Getting to know Hogan Lovells

I came to then Hogan & Hartson as a summer clerk in 1973. I selected the firm because of its excellent practice and reputation, and because it was a great place to work. I enjoyed my summer so much that I accepted my offer to join the firm as an associate over the phone.

People

Throughout my career, I’ve had many offers to go to other firms, but Hogan Lovells is my home — it’s like family. People genuinely care about one another. I have also developed friendships with many of my clients.

Experience

The Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation practice, also known internally as ACER, functions as a close-knit team. We have approximately 130 lawyers who do antitrust work in the firm in countries all over the world.

I serve as one of the practice area leaders for the antitrust team. My typical day involves a couple of hours spent on administrative issues, plus multiple phone calls and meetings to address client issues.

I have always been active in the firm’s pro bono work. For many years I was the lead lawyer for ERAmerica, which gave me a chance to work on women’s issues. I take particular pride in our work for Family Matters and Calvary Women’s Services.
