Join the dynamic of a unique legal practice

High-quality opportunities

Before joining Hogan Lovells, I was a partner at a New York-based international law firm. I decided that I needed a more global platform to better serve my clients, and Hogan Lovells was a perfect fit for me. You can take a large firm and make it feel small (which is what Hogan Lovells does), but you can’t take a small firm and make it feel big.

Take time to get to know us, and you’ll realize that we truly have a unique combination of attributes: excellent lawyers, great culture, and a global presence.

Professional expertise

I joined Hogan Lovells with a team of six other lawyers with whom I worked closely on complex domestic and international disputes. There really is no typical day, especially since I travel about two weeks out of every month. I’m otherwise meeting with clients or attending hearings and conferences.

I have an active trial practice in U.S. federal and state courts, and I routinely represent foreign and domestic clients in arbitrations. I also assist foreign product manufacturers in supply chain disputes, product liability litigation, and in related regulatory matters. Because I am fluent in Spanish and proficient in Portuguese, I regularly counsel clients on matters involving Latin America.

A common mindset

My expectations were that the firm would be full of exceptionally talented and committed lawyers and staff, with a focus on excellence and client service. Within months of joining, I was asked to participate in a two-week roadshow to over a dozen clients in Germany. This was a terrific opportunity to work with and get to know lawyers from other offices around the world. I got to experience the firm’s global scale and commitment to clients first hand. Hogan Lovells has truly exceeded all my expectations.

The firm takes its commitment to pro bono very seriously. This is reflected in the quantity of matters we handle and the quality of work we do. I’ve worked with Kids in Need of Defense on a pro bono basis, which is an organization that represents undocumented immigrant children in asylum cases.
