Aline Doussin has started at Hogan Lovells in London as partner in the firm’s international trade and investment group.

Doussin leaves Squire Patton Boggs after four years as a partner, having established its trade practice in London. She previously spent four years at DLA Piper, where she worked in its London trade practice.

Alice Valder Curran, global head of Hogan Lovells’ government regulatory practice group, to whom Doussin reports, says: “We are delighted that Aline is joining the firm to help us continue to meet the trade needs of our clients. Aline, a dual-qualified lawyer in England and France, enhances our offering in the market.”

Lourdes Catrain, co-di‎rector of Hogan Lovells’ international trade and investment practice, adds: “We have seen the increasing importance that trade laws and policy decisions have on our clients’ operations throughout the EU and elsewhere. Adding Aline to our existing team will allow us to respond to these growing needs.”
