Hogan & Hartson Elevates Amy M. Gallegos to Partner
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Hogan & Hartson has announced that it has made attorney Amy M. Gallegos in its Los Angeles office a partner.
The firm said Monday that it had elevated Gallegos as well as three other counsel and seven associates around the globe to partner status effective Jan. 1, and elevated five associates to counsel status.
Firm chairman, Warren Gorrell, said that the “highly-skilled lawyers” were selected for promotion based on their “positive impact on our firm and our clients.”
Gallegos represents clients in complex commercial disputes, with special emphasis on the entertainment and media industries, and has experience in matters involving copyright infringement, licensing, intellectual property disputes, unfair competition and antitrust, according to her firm profile. She also does some state and federal employment law work, defending employers against charges of wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment and retaliation.
Gallegos graduated from college at UC Berkeley and law school at UCLA. Admitted to the State Bar in 2000, she previously served as a summer extern for U.S. District Court Judge Gary L. Taylor of the Central District of California.
Hogan & Hartson is an international law firm founded in Washington, D.C., with more than 1,100 lawyers worldwide. Last month it announced that it will be combining with Lovells LLP effective May 1 to form Hogan Lovells, subject to regulatory clearance.
