Matthew J. Higgins

Matt Higgins recently rejoined Hogan Lovells after working as a summer associate in 2014. Matt's experience centers on civil litigation, agency enforcement, and administrative law. After completing two federal clerkships in Washington D.C., Matt saw first-hand how governmental agencies operate and acquired a deep knowledge of the challenges businesses face in litigation.

Between graduating from law school and returning to the firm, Matt served as a law clerk to the Honorable Judith W. Rogers of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and to the Honorable Royce C. Lamberth of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

While in law school, Matt was a Senior Editor of the Stanford Law Review and served clients in the Religious Liberty Clinic. As an undergraduate, he received a bachelor of science degree in mathematical economics from Wake Forest University, where he graduated summa cum laude. Before law school, he spent two years working as an associate at an international consulting firm.
