As a civil litigator, Yuri Fuchs combines experience in a wide variety of litigation, big picture thinking, and a commitment to understanding clients' needs. Yuri has experience at all stages of civil litigation, including motions to dismiss, depositions, discovery disputes, class certification, summary judgment motions, settlements, and appeals.

He has worked across a variety of matters litigating consumer protection claims, complex commercial matters, and securities claims in addition to providing counsel on high-stakes government investigations.

Yuri also maintains an active pro bono practice. Since his first year at the firm, he has represented criminal defendants in capital post-conviction proceedings, prison inmates seeking to challenge their conditions of confinement, and indigent defendants litigating for their right to counsel. In the summer of 2018, Yuri traveled with a team of Hogan Lovells attorneys to the United States-Mexico border to assist Central American refugees seeking asylum.

Following his first year at Hogan Lovells and before rejoining as a third-year associate, Yuri clerked for Judge Carolyn Dineen King of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Yuri graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School where he served as an articles editor on the University of Pennsylvania Law Review. He was also a member of his law school's Supreme Court Clinic and taught a once-a-week civics course based on constitutional law to high school students in the Philadelphia area.
