“I joined a firm with a global presence and have seen it grow into one of the leading global firms, with depth and breadth worldwide.”
- Rob Ripin, Partner, New York
My practice focuses on capital markets and securities law.
Getting to know Hogan Lovells
I chose Hogan Lovells because I wanted to work at a firm with significant international reach. I joined a firm with an international presence and have seen it grow into one of the leading global firms, with depth and breadth worldwide.
I represent underwriters, issuers, and other transaction participants on capital markets deals and other financing transactions. My daily practice is a mixture of drafting and negotiating legal documentation, advising on securities law issues, and counseling clients.
Because of the global nature of the practice, I have been able to work with colleagues around the world on cutting-edge transactional work. When you work with international colleagues on a daily basis, you get an insight into a culture and how others outside the United States approach issues and problem solving, which would not be available to you if your practice was limited to purely domestic matters.
My team is a mix of counsel and associates at various levels of seniority. Part of what I enjoy about my practice is training junior associates and watching them develop and grow.
When working abroad on deals with my local colleagues, they are invariably warm and friendly. I’ve had the pleasure of being invited into the homes of my colleagues around the world.
Working around late-night drafting sessions, I’ve have also enjoyed getting to know the ins and outs of cities with my colleagues. As an example, Mumbai is just as vibrant at midnight as it is at noon.
As a partner in our Finance practice group for more than a decade, I focus on capital markets and securities law. I represent issuers, underwriters, corporate trustees, and depositary banks in both equity and debt offerings as well as advise companies on U.S. corporate law matters and SEC compliance.
I am a graduate of the New York University School of Law. Outside of the office, I enjoy listening to folk music and jazz.
