Mandi Jacobson joins Hogan Lovells in global regulatory practice
14 October 2020
Hogan Lovells has announced that life sciences and regulatory expert Mandi Jacobson will join the firm as a partner in its global regulatory practice, together with two associates. The team will be based in the firm’s Sydney office and will start with the firm on October 15, 2020.
Jacobson and her team will join from Dentons, where she led that firm’s Australia life sciences group. She is heavily involved in the life sciences industry, with particular expertise in pharmaceuticals, medical devices and biotech.
In a statement, the firm said that the hire of the team will enable it to grow its existing client base in the Asia Pacific region and service various key life sciences clients of the global firm.
“I am delighted to welcome Mandi and her team to the firm,” said Alice Valder Curran, head of the firm’s global regulatory practice. “Mandi’s appointment will enable us to broaden the footprint of our leading global regulatory practice and capitalize on opportunities in the region.”
Scott Harris, managing partner for Hogan Lovells in Australia, added: “The establishment of a regulatory and life sciences practice in Australia represents the latest investment in the growth of our firm in Australia, following strategic partner hires earlier this year in our energy and natural resources practice in Perth, and our finance practice in Sydney.”
