Lead Executive GE Capital Counsel Douglas Taber Joins Hogan Lovells' Prominent Bankruptcy and Restructuring Team

New York, 10 September 2018 – International law firm Hogan Lovells announced today that Douglas Taber has joined the firm’s Business Restructuring and Insolvency (BRI) practice as partner in its New York office. Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Taber served as Lead Executive Counsel, Restructuring & Banking, at GE Capital.

Taber’s arrival follows that of Rick Wynne, Bennett Spiegel, and Erin Brady to the firm’s BRI practice in April.

“We have been strategically expanding our BRI practice and the banking practice nationwide to provide lender-side restructuring advice,” said Chris Donoho, co-head of the firm’s U.S. BRI practice. “Doug’s experience and reputation in New York will enable us to continue our strong performance in a very competitive market.”

Taber spent over 17 years at GE Capital, first as Managing Director and General Counsel responsible for restructurings at GE Capital Corporate Financial Services, then as Head Executive Counsel at GE Capital, including throughout the financial crisis. At GE Capital he managed GE Capital's largest and most complex US bankruptcies, cross border insolvencies and out-of-court restructurings.

Taber began his legal career in 1988 at Goldberg Kohn Ltd., where he served as an associate until 1995 before accepting an invitation to join the partnership. He spent five years as a partner before going in-house to GE Capital.

Taber also has substantial legal knowledge beyond bankruptcy and restructuring, including commercial finance, corporate governance and M&A. His tenure at GE Capital coincided with the introduction of a significant amount of new regulation created by the Dodd Frank Act, and he acted as the lead internal counsel on GE Capital’s Dodd Frank resolution plan. As a result of his broad experience both in private practice and as in-house counsel, Taber has a deep and wide network of business and legal connections in the financial services industry.

Taber earned his J.D. cum laude from Harvard Law School, an MA in Teaching (English) from the University of Chicago, and BA in English summa cum laude from Bowdoin College. He is admitted to practice in Illinois, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York.
