Jeffrey A. Lowe is the Global Practice Leader of our Law Firm Practice Group, the Managing Partner of our Washington, D.C., office and the leader of the Washington, D.C., Partner Practice Group. His practice focuses on the representation of high-profile law firm partners and groups and high-ranking government officials. He regularly handles the most significant placements in Washington, D.C., and is widely regarded as one of the leading partner recruiters and advisors in the United States.

Jeffrey is also the author of the 2010, 2012 and 2014 Major, Lindsey & Africa Partner Compensation Surveys, the most comprehensive efforts ever undertaken to identify ranges of partner compensation and the criteria law firms use in determining partner compensation, and the co-author of the 2014 Major, Lindsey & Africa Lateral Partner Satisfaction Survey. He is regularly quoted by leading legal publications and periodicals, such as The American Lawyer, The Wall Street Journal and Law 360, and his articles have been published in the D.C. Legal Times, The New York Law Journal, The National Law Journal, the Law Firm Partnership & Benefits Report and the Texas Lawyer.


Prior to opening the Washington, D.C. office of Major, Lindsey & Africa in 2003, Jeffrey was a partner in the Washington, D.C., office of Hogan & Hartson L.L.P. His experience as a partner with a major law firm is an invaluable asset because of his insider's understanding of both the practice of law and the business of running a law firm. Jeffrey began his legal career in 1989 as a corporate and finance associate with Kaye Scholer in New York. He joined Hogan & Hartson L.L.P. in 1991 and was elected to the partnership in 1998. In 1994–1995, Jeffrey worked in Tokyo, Japan, with Mori Sogo Law Offices (now Mori Hamada & Matsumoto), one of Japan's leading international and domestic law firms.

As a member of Hogan & Hartson's Business and Finance Group, Jeffrey counseled many Fortune 100 and privately held companies, with an emphasis on mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance matters. He also played a leading role in the firm's recruitment and professional development programs, including serving as chairman of the firm's nationwide Summer Associate programs in 2001 and 2002. In 2002 and 2003, Jeffrey joined William & Mary's adjunct faculty, where he taught a course on the fundamentals of transactional practice at the law school.
