Lance Murashige guides his clients through the complexities of litigation and government investigations in a broad practice including cyber attack and data breach response, health insurance coverage disputes, and products liability class actions.

Lance's cases involve a wide range of substantive laws, including the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, Section 5(a) of the FTC Act, and numerous state laws including structured settlement protection acts, data breach notification laws, and consumer protection acts. Regardless of the substantive law at issue, Lance knows that the best way to serve his clients is to gain a deep understanding of their needs. With this knowledge in hand, Lance advises clients in each stage of a case or investigation, whether responding to a government agency's investigatory demands, or briefing dispositive motions.

Lance maintains an active pro bono practice, focusing on providing legal services to his neighbors in Washington, D.C. Lance successfully represented a class of homeless families who sued to enforce their rights to appropriate shelter under D.C. law. Lance also successfully won class certification for a class of D.C. residents who allege that they have been subject to unlawful delays and errors in D.C.'s administration of its SNAP benefits program (commonly known as food stamps). In 2016, the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless awarded Lance with the Lois G. Williams Extraordinary Service Award for his continuing work on behalf of D.C.'s homeless population.

Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Lance was Notes Editor for the Virginia Law Review and head writer for the school's Libel Show. Prior to law school, Lance taught high school algebra, calculus, and robotics in Nanakuli, Hawaii.
