New York, 9 March 2017 – Hogan Lovells announced today that Adam Tope will join the firm’s Corporate practice as a partner in the New York office.

“We are excited for Adam to join us,” said David Winter, co-head of the firm's global Fund Formation Practice Group. “Adam’s talent and excellent relationships with private equity firms and institutional investors makes him a good addition to our New York office where he will be able to provide our clients with advice on all aspects of fund formation.”

Tope represents the sponsors of private equity, real estate, venture capital and hedge funds across the full spectrum of fund formation matters, including co-investment vehicles, managed accounts and funds of one. He also advises investors on fund investments, direct investments and co-investments, including secondary transactions.

“The firm’s global network and cross-practice capabilities will expand the services I can offer to private equity and venture capital firms and to investors in private funds,” said Tope. “Hogan Lovells is also ideal for helping me expand what we can provide clients given the firm’s extensive regulatory, tax, ERISA and transactional work.”

Tope also advises startup companies on a variety of corporate-related matters and is working to create innovative technology-based solutions to manage the fund formation process.

“Adam’s skills are closely aligned with the needs of our clients both in the New York market and internationally,” said David Gibbons, head of the firm's global Corporate Practice Group.  “Due to client demand, we have been focused on strategically expanding our Investment Funds practice in New York.”

Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Tope was a shareholder at Greenberg Traurig, LLP. He earned his J.D., cum laude, from Georgetown University Law Center and his B.S. from Cornell University. He is admitted to practice in New York and the District of Columbia.
