A member of Hogan Lovells' Employment practice group, Amy Kett's practice combines counseling and litigation. She regularly advises employers on a wide range of issues, including the anti-discrimination laws and FMLA, FLSA, and ADA compliance. She also works with education clients on sensitive matters such as harassment and bullying.

Amy is an experienced advocate, having filed merits and amicus briefs on behalf of clients before numerous federal and state trial and appellate courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, and she has successfully orally argued cases before federal and state courts of appeal. Amy's litigation practice focuses on employment and education issues but has spanned a variety of other substantive areas, including whistleblower law, products liability law, class action law, and administrative law.

Prior to joining the firm in 1993, Amy served as a law clerk to Justice Sandra Day O'Connor of the U.S. Supreme Court and to Judge Laurence H. Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. She graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where she was Executive Editor of the Harvard Law Review.
