The Hogan Lovells group - which constitutes all the Hogan partners in Berlin - is particularly renowned for its technology and media practice. 'We are delighted to become partners of Morrison & Foerster,' said Christoph Wagner, a leading media, M&A and regulatory lawyer, as reported on PR Newswire.  'We believe this combination will deliver many benefits to our clients and to MoFo's well-known TMT clients across its offices in Tokyo, London, New York, Northern California and elsewhere. With MoFo, we build a bridge from Berlin to Silicon Valley to carry our clients at high speed in both directions.'
