An Interview with Nick Cray, COO and Steve Immelt, CEO of Hogan Lovells

Who’s Who Legal recently attended Hogan Lovells’ Africa-themed annual press party celebrating the firm’s recent establishment in Johannesburg. The office is the result of a combination with firm Routledge Modise, which took place on 1 December 2013, broadening the firm’s sub-Saharan Africa capabilities and adding to its global platform. Following the party, Who’s Who Legal spoke to Nick Cray, chief operating officer, and Steve Immelt, chief executive officer, to find out more about the firm’s recent developments and strategy.

FHR v Cedar: Bribes and Secret Profits

Toby Graham of Farrer & Co explores the implications of FHR v Cedar: "The clarification of the law in relation to bribes and secret commissions is to be welcomed, though the judgment lacks a clear doctrinal rationale for imposing a trust, leading to some uncertainty as to its scope. This may result in litigants seeking to apply the principle established in FHR v Cedar to other unauthorised gains."
