Hogan Lovells has secured the signatures of two new partners for its competition team in Johannesburg. 

Travelling across Sandton are IFLR1000 leading lawyer Lesley Morphet and Nkonzo Hlatshwayo, who both join from Webber Wentzel, Linklaters associate firm in South Africa. 

Morphet joins the firm as head of competition, and Hlatshwayo will be a partner in the same team. 

This is the latest in a growing string of partner moves in South Africa, as the competition for dominance begins to intensify in the jurisdiction.
