Even though the merger of Washington D.C.-based law firm Hogan & Hartson and London-based law firm Lovells was completed in 2010, the multinational law firm Hogan Lovells had still been operating almost as separate firms. Two CEOs — Warren Gorrell and David Harris — head up the company, and the chain of command remained relatively compartmentalized.

However, the firm seems to be taking steps to streamline that chain of command, highlighted by a major announcement on Dec. 11. Hogan Lovells has appointed current global co-head of Litigation Practice Steve Immelt as the company’s next CEO, the first sole CEO in the merged company’s history.
