02 December 2015
WASHINGTON, 2 December 2015 – Hogan Lovells is proud to announce that Bob Kapp, a long-time partner and current of counsel in our Washington, D.C. office, was honored with a Lifetime Achievement award by the International Senior Lawyers Project (ISLP) at its 15th anniversary ceremony. At the event, which featured a keynote address from President Bill Clinton, Bob was recognized for shaping ISLP’s unique vision and for creating meaningful change around the world through pro bono legal assistance.
Bob co-founded ISLP in 2000 with the idea of mobilizing highly skilled and experienced lawyers working pro bono to help address serious issues of economic development around the world. ISLP has since grown to an organization that has worked with more than 80 countries, and its volunteers have provided more than a half million hours of international service working with governments and civil society on complex legal issues.
Bob joined Hogan & Hartson in 1961, focusing on tax controversy matters, and representing clients in the federal courts and before the Internal Revenue Service. He has also advised a number of universities, hospitals, charitable organizations, and other non-profit organizations on tax and other matters. In 1970, Bob was instrumental in the establishment of our Community Services Department, which was the first pro bono program of its kind, and he has long been active in organizations dedicated to the advancement of civil rights and civil liberties, serving as past-national co-chairman of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
