Health care antitrust leader joins Hogan Lovells in Washington, D.C., strengthening global antitrust capabilities

Global law firm Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce that Kenneth W. Field has joined the firm as leader of the health care antitrust practice and a partner in the Global Regulatory & Intellectual Property, Media & Technology (IPMT) practice group in Washington, D.C. Field joins Hogan Lovells from Jones Day, where he was an antitrust partner and co-chaired the firm’s global Health Care Practice.

“We are delighted to welcome Ken to the firm,” said Janice Hogan, Global Head of Hogan Lovells’ Global Regulatory & IPMT practice group. “As a nationally recognized leader in both antitrust and health care law, Ken’s addition builds on our strategic commitment as one of Washington, D.C.’s top regulatory firms to grow and maintain the strength of our key practices.”
Field, who will be part of the firm’s Antitrust, Competition, and Economic Regulation (ACER) practice area, advises clients across the antitrust and competition law sectors before the United States Department of Justice (DOJ), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and relevant state antitrust enforcement authorities. He has a broad range of transactional and M&A experience, as well as a deep understanding of complex health care regulatory issues.
Logan Breed, who co-leads the firm’s global ACER practice area, said: “Over the past two decades, the firm has built one of the nation’s leading antitrust practices—including one that is well known for its work in both the health care provider and payer sector. Ken’s experience handing complex merger clearance, investigations, and counseling matters across the spectrum of health care and other sectors will make him a key asset for clients, and his addition not only adds to the strength of our team but also demonstrates the practice’s commitment to excellent client service.”
Michele Farquhar, Managing Partner for the Washington, D.C. office, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Ken to the Washington, D.C. office. He joins extremely skilled antitrust and health care teams—and with his strong track record of leadership and collegiality, is a welcome addition.”
Field previously served as FTC Counsel to the Director of the Bureau of Competition and lead attorney on significant FTC investigations and merger challenges, as well as with the Antitrust Division of the DOJ. He has been recognized as a Law360 Health Law MVP for his work on high-profile merger and litigation matters, as a Health Care/Life Science Trailblazer by the National Law Journal, and as a BTI Client Service All-Star.
Field said: “The Hogan Lovells antitrust team has successfully represented clients in the most high profile merger challenges in recent history—from Meta/Within, to United/Change, to Jefferson/Einstein, and now Assa Abbloy—and I am thrilled to join this dynamic and accomplished practice. I am particularly excited to draw on our combined experience representing health care clients before state and federal antitrust enforcers and continuing to help those clients meet their strategic objectives.”
Field earned his J.D. and MBA from the Georgetown University Law Center and holds a B.A. in Political Science from the University of California, San Diego.
