WASHINGTON, March 30 (Reuters) - A former trade and economics adviser to President Donald , Kelly Ann Shaw, is joining the law firm Hogan Lovells, she and a representative of the firm told Reuters.

Shaw left the White House last fall after serving as 's G7 and G20 "sherpa" and as a member of the team advising the president on trade talks with China. She was one of the most senior women on his economic team.

Shaw said she hoped the G7 and G20 groups of nations would rise to the challenge of tackling the coronavirus and she encouraged to lift tariffs or grant exclusions on life-saving equipment in the short term.

"We would want to see health equipment and life saving equipment be able to get into the hands of the people who need it the most as quickly as possible," she said.
