“It is an honor to be asked to take over management responsibilities from Carter Phillips, who built not only a world class practice, but a world class office here in Washington,” Hopson said. “I hope to provide continuity and support for an office that has an abundance of talented lawyers both as leaders in their practices and in the profession as a whole. As the firm expands on our successful national and global platform, the opportunities for the D.C. office will continue to grow.”

Hopson is currently the co-head of the law firm’s White Collar practice. Hopson’s practice has worked on various criminal and civil litigation issues, including defending clients in jury trials. Hopson has also represented clients in cases involving the government and internal investigations. Hopson will continue to operate an active litigation practice while serving in his new role.
