Automotive frame


The automotive sector faces a range of challenges globally. Compliance with complex safety regulations. Dealer disputes. Concerns over environmental impact. Intellectual property disputes and licensing arrangements. Privacy rights and connected vehicles. Class action litigation.  

Hogan Lovells provides a unique perspective on these and other emerging issues in the automotive industry. We know it’s vital to anticipate and respond quickly to such challenges. Our goal is to help you achieve a competitive advantage while minimizing risk.

We do not think you will find a group of lawyers representing the automotive industry with more relevant experience. We work closely with colleagues in other practice areas, including M&A, corporate, antitrust and competition, litigation and arbitration, product liability, and intellectual property. Our cross-border capabilities allow us to provide comprehensive, top-quality, one-stop legal advice to meet your most pressing needs. 

We advise clients based on in-depth knowledge of, and years of experience in, the automotive industry. We don’t just know the government agencies and authorities you have to deal with — we’ve been part of them. Our lawyers have served in senior positions at the European Commission; the U.S. Departments of Transportation, Justice, and Energy; the U.S. Federal Trade Commission; and the UK competition authority. 

We’ve worked with the world’s leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of automobiles, trucks, buses, motorcycles, and other motor vehicles. We’ve also worked with suppliers of automotive parts and distributors. And we counsel motor vehicle manufacturers and distributors on their dealer networks in all 50 U.S. states, as well as in Europe, Asia, and Middle East.
